10 Student Job Search Websites
These are the best websites for finding student jobs:
1. Save the Student
We might be a little biased. But here at Save the Student, we’ve got one of the best resources for finding part-time student jobs. Our job search engine scours many of the sites listed below (and more!) for roles every hour.
You can easily filter by keyword and location, and there are thousands of student-friendly job opportunities for you to browse.
As its name suggests, StudentJob specializes in student jobs of all shapes and varieties. There are plenty of part-time and summer jobs for you to take a look at, but also graduate jobs, placements, and internships.
It covers all the big cities in the UK, and they have lots of international opportunities, too.
3. Indeed Flex
Although not specifically for student jobs, Indeed Flex (formally Syft) is an up-and-coming app that helps jobseekers find flexible, temp work with reputable employers.
There are no minimum shifts, and the type of work on offer is varied, making this app perfect if you’re after work without committing to a long-term contract.
As one of the biggest student job sites in the UK, employment 4 students (or ‘e4s’, for short) is absolutely bursting at the seams with opportunities.
And they don’t just list part-time vacancies either – e4s has sections for gap year jobs, internships, graduate roles, and opportunities for school leavers.
5. Graduate Recruitment Bureau
The Graduate Recruitment Bureau (GRB) is the leading recruitment agency for graduate jobs in the UK and can match you up with roles in companies ranging from big corporations to small startups.
It’s also great if you’re looking for an internship or placement too, so you don’t need to wait until your final year to sign up.
6. Student Employment Services
Student Employment Services (SES) specializes in internships and placements, so if you’re looking to get some real-world experience while you study, this is a good place to start your search.
But it also has a whole load of graduate opportunities and could be a useful way of getting your first step on the career ladder.
7. Flair Events
Flair is a nationwide company, that helps people find jobs in sports, festivals, hospitality, and promo work. Roles include brand ambassadors, bar staff, street marketing, front-of-house, and wristbands.
For many roles, no previous experience is necessary – it’s all about having the right kind of attitude and good communication skills. It’s the perfect site if you’re looking for casual summer work where you’ll be paid weekly, and it may even help you get to a festival without paying.
If you’re looking to sign up for an American summer camp, AmeriCamp is consistently one of the best values.
Unlike most other summer camp agencies, AmeriCamp doesn’t offer any packages with flights. Although this means a little extra work for you, it does mean you can use our tips on how to get cheap flights and avoid being ripped off.
9. Adzuna Graduate Jobs
Adzuna is a powerful search engine to help you hunt through the thousands of job opportunities across the UK.
The site also has loads of useful up-to-date stats for graduates, such as the number of vacancies over the last few months, how salaries are changing, and a map showing which areas of the UK have the most graduate job opportunities.
