Student employment at your Union

As part of our new strategy, "Becoming Your Union", we chose six key impacts that we want to focus on achieving. One of them is Your Employability.

You've told us that employability is one of your top concerns, and we want our work to mirror that. We want to ensure that students at Sussex have the best start to their future careers, but are also able to take up employment and volunteering opportunities while here at Sussex, to develop their skills and gain valuable work experience. 

Over the past year, we have already hired 231 student staff in a variety of roles! These positions include our bars and outlets, working in administrative roles throughout the Union, or one of the full time positions we have set aside for recent graduates of Sussex, IDS and BSMS.

Going forward, we aim to expand on this work, and do even better at improving the employability of Sussex students. Have a question or suggestion? Contact the student President, Filip, at president@sussexstudent.com

For our current vacancies, take a look at our jobs page, or to make sure you never miss out on a future vacancy follow our LinkedIn page or join our vacancy mailing list. If you're interested, do this soon as we tend to do a lot of recruitment in the run up to September.
