When I first came to England to study, like many of you, I was looking for a job. I had just landed in a strange city and needed to earn some extra money to buy books and fund my studies. I searched the internet for student jobs in London, but found very little that would suit my situation.
Then I came across Gumtree, an online listings company; they had thousands of jobs in many different sectors. From bar jobs to babysitting, this site can help you with all your job hunting needs. They even had a specific section for student jobs.
The site is a great way for people to look for jobs especially students in London and other areas. Whether you are an international student or a local student this website is a great resource.
You just need to type in the type of job you want into the search bar and enter the part of the city you would like to work in. You will find that lots of jobs will instantly appear on your screen. You can then apply for jobs through the site by replying to the ads or contacting the employer directly through details listed in the ad. When you’re nearing the end of your studies, you can also use it to find graduate jobs in your industry.
If you are an international student you should remember that there may be restrictions on the number of hours you can work, as specified by your visa. Universities also advise a 15 hour limit on the number of hours you work.
University studies should always come first, but it is helpful to earn a little extra money to supplement your student lifestyle and Gumtree will get you there.
