“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
