Coming to Cardiff

Where can I find employment opportunities?

The Unistaff Jobshop on campus is a good starting point for your search for casual employment.

It is a free service for all Cardiff University students. The Jobshop operates as a temporary student employment agency providing part-time jobs with the Students’ Union, University and outside companies.

All vacancies that are advertised pay at least at the adult National Minimum Wage (currently £6.50 per hour) for workers aged 21 and over, while positions at within Cardiff University will usually be paid at the Living Wage - currently £7.85 per hour. 

Once you arrive in Cardiff, you can register by calling into the Jobshop in the Students’ Union building with your student ID card and passport. More information is on the Jobshop website:
