Getting a job for students is hard in Uk… Isn’t it!!!

Its a great job to get great job in Uk ;-)Well, in this post I would like to say something about student part-time job market. I heard Once “Uk is the heaven for students” now you guys who live in Uk knows the reality. So what do you think hell or heaven? Though studying in England is really exciting.

Now I’m going to say some straight forward cruel reality. Basically students are allowed to work up to 20 hours during term time and full time on off period. Uk border Agency recently (March, 2010) announced that who are studying under degree level they can work no more than 10 hours in a week.  And the great platform to work for students at MacDonalds, Sainsbury, Asda, Tesco, Next, Restaurant, Bar & Club etc. But nowadays most of them are not interested to recruit students as part-time because of their own internal policy. On the other hand it doesn’t mean they are not recruiting students at all.

Some of my readers asked me to post about something student part-time jobs. That is why here I’m on about it and finding some great solution for them who wish to come in England on study purpose. This is a challenge where you have to run behind it thoroughly, roughly and smartly.

Some Uk jobsite information where you can find job from online

And the other most informative is our Google where you can search not only job but also everything. By the way this is not only one article about student jobs. I’ll come with more authentic information within a very short time till then enjoy my blog and share with your friends.

          Thanks for your comments. You can work during term time 20 hours weekly and full time work on holiday. That means when you are in vacation.

          Hourly wages depends on company base. Standard payment is £6 hourly in Uk and national minimum wages is £5.80.

      I appreciate your comments. Please note that ”You need to take some extra course for MBA and as a student you can work up to 20 hours weekly legally. More than 20 hour is illegal in Term time.

      Dear Asad
      Its really hard to say that you’ll be able to do that but most of the students do t.

      If you don’t get job then you may suffer for it. Getting a job as student here depends on how
      determine and hard worker you are.

      But dont worry you really have a chance to get job if you are serious.

      Best Wishes

      Dear Max

      Thanks for your comments. I always appreciate genuine students who wants to study in UK. But there is a big factor is Universities in UK is really expensive. So before making any final decision think about it if your financial situation is not good enough. Even you shouldn’t depend on new PSW or Graduate Entrepreneur route to repay your loan after successfully completing your study in London because of uncertain UK job market. Thanks
