What is the Talent Bank?

The Talent Bank gives students on courses of at least two semesters duration the opportunity to apply for paid temporary and part-time work across all campuses and various departments within the University of Westminster.

It is also a scheme through which University of Westminster departments can quickly appoint staff to fill part-time vacancies, for both casual and longer-term roles. The scheme is designed to be reciprocal, providing students with the opportunity to ‘earn while you learn’ and develop your skills and experience, yet also provide an efficient means for departments to fulfil their staffing requirements.

Why register with the Talent Bank?

We recognise the increasing need among students to offset the expense of studying full-time by taking on temporary or part-time work, but we also know that taking on work during your course is not just about earning extra cash. It's a fantastic opportunity for you to develop transferable skills, gain valuable professional experience and subsequently increase your job prospects for after graduation.

We are looking for a number of students to register with us for flexible work over the coming months.

The number and types of opportunities available via the Talent Bank vary from year to year, month to month. Look at some examples of Talent Bank roles that may come up throughout the year.

What will I be paid?

Within the University of Westminster, students can work a maximum of 20 hours per week earning either £8.21 (National Living Wage), £10.55 (London Living Wage) or £12 an hour depending on the job. Students will be required to fill in a timesheet each month and will be paid on a monthly basis.

How do I apply?
