Want work that fits in around your study? Apply to join the Talent Bank!

17 December 2014

The Talent Bank is an invaluable resource that provides current students with paid temporary or part-time work opportunities within the University of Westminster and now with external employers.

Working while studying is a great opportunity to develop your transferable skills, gain valuable professional experience and therefore increase your job prospects after graduation.

The roles offered at the Talent Bank vary from Telephone Researchers to Data Entry, Envelope Stuffers or Research Project Assistants. Positions are paid either national minimum wage, £9 or £12 per hour, depending on the nature of work. The Talent Bank is open to all current students at the University of Westminster.

Applications are now open 24/7 throughout the academic year. However, there are deadlines for each intake. The next intake deadline is Monday 5 January at 9am. To apply now, visit our Talent Bank page. Please note that we are only able to register a limited number of students.

“Talent Bank was a lifesaver. I had previously been freelancing as a journalist, but finding a job which worked within the hours of my children’s schedules as well as my studies, was going to be pretty hard. Or so I thought. Talent Bank allowed me to secure numerous positions, such as invigilating, transcribing, working as a language assistant and more recently as an internal communications officer. The work has been varied, allowed me to meet so many interesting and dynamic people but also enabled me to take financial control of my situation, which of course aided my studies.” Christine Bramble, Creative Writing student

“I would definitely recommend Talent Bank to my friends and fellow students as it is a really useful resource to gain unique work experience within the University. It is a great way of getting a flexible part time job that fits around your academic time table. It is an excellent opportunity to gain distinct work experience to increase your employability before entering the graduate life after University. Muhammad Alam, Computer Engineering student

Good luck to everyone applying!
