How Joblink can help
Whether you're looking for part-time, temporary or voluntary work, Joblink can help you. Our service is exclusive to members of Leeds University Union and recent graduates. We list a huge range of vacancies, updated daily. We also offer advice to help you find a job and to support you while you are working.
Types of jobs
Our vacancies specifically target students and are either part-time, temporary or just during vacations, meaning you should be able to find work that doesn't interfere with academic work.
We also offer the following services:
Recruitment Fairs, allowing students to find and meet employers
Employer open days
Employer presentations and CV clinics
We act as a temporary recruitment agency supplying workers for external companies, the University and the Union.
Searching for jobs
Search our latest vacancies online to find out what's available. You'll need to be logged in to this website first.
You must be a current student or have graduated from Leeds within the last academic year - this is because we are a service provided and funded by Leeds University Union.
