The Students’ Union is seeking to help students find part-time work and develop new skills through a brand new part-time jobs fayre in October.
The fayre will feature a variety of employers, from both the Students’ Union and local businesses, offering students an excellent opportunity to speak to employers face to face and find out more about employment at university.
Alongside external and internal employers, the fayre will also host a variety of workshops and talks on subjects such as interview skills, what to wear for interviews and assistance with writing CVs and personal specifications. Employability Champions from each college at Swansea University will also be giving talks on the day telling students about opportunities in their own academic area.
Judith James, Strategic Projects Manager at the university welcomes the event saying “As manager of Swansea Employability Academy I am delighted that the students are leading this initiative and will fully support the event.
“Working or volunteering can help students to develop commercial and business awareness which is in demand by employers in every sector. There are opportunities to develop creativity, innovation and entrepreneurial skills- and you could earn some useful money as well!”
Information will be available regarding voluntary opportunities in the Students’ Union, from getting involved in campaigns, to working with the community or as a part-time officer or Subject and College Reps.
The fayre will be held on the 2nd October in the marquee soon to be erected in the front of Fulton House. It’s an event not just for first years but for all students looking to find part-time work, to gain new skills or to get involved with what the Students’ Union can offer.
