Want To Find A Part Time Job In The UK But Don’t Know Where And How?

October 19, 2021by admin

Going abroad is usually the biggest and most adventurous decision made by many people, no matter whether it’s for studying, working, or getting settled permanently. They have to go through many procedures and processes especially if you are a student. You have to choose the right country, universities/colleges, courses, get the bank loan approval, complete the medical/biometrics process and the important thing is to get the visa.

Also, students and their parents have to face many issues. And once the visa is ready, they feel a little bit relaxed but even after getting it, they become worried when thinking about many other things.

Everyone wants to have a safe journey in a secure place with amazing people, living, studying, and working in a good environment. Mainly parents are really worried about their children’s life like how they manage their daily routines with studies, how they travel, health, climate, and the biggest concern is that how they find a job, where and how it will be, is it hard to do or not, how they manage both studies and job together, etc.

But why do people need to worry about their jobs? Is it really important?

If you want to go abroad as a part of studies, work, or to migrate, you have to pay or show a certain amount of money in your account to reach the country of your choice and dream. Some people pay these amounts by taking it from their hands, with the help of their parents, by selling their ancestral property or any other property. But many people apply for a bank loan especially for their study purpose, people will apply for an educational loan which can be paid after completing their studies.

“Applying or getting a bank loan can be a nightmare for some people. They sometimes wonder what if the loan amount can be paid back. That’s why most international students apply for part-time jobs while studying”. 

Doing part-time jobs is not only to pay the loan amount or to support their family but also to become financially stable by themselves, to meet the coming year fees/living expenses/ bills, etc. this will also allow them to work somewhere and gain experience. Part-time jobs in the area of interest or study will also give you the chance to improve your skills and knowledge.

In the UK, doing a part-time job is popular among international students which have many advantages. As a new person in another country other than my home country, getting or earning some money is not a simple thing. This means you are making some extra money to save for the future. You can also change your lifestyle later like buying a new home, car, dress, accessories. You can also go for travel, higher education and you will also get good treatment at famous hospitals with all the facilities.

 

Working during your free time can be considered as a way of socializing with other people. Also working in various jobs like for example skilled labor jobs can be useful and helpful for you in future.

Everything is true but sometimes as an international student in a country like the UK, finding a proper part-time job can be the biggest task. They even think about how and where to find a job and what kind of jobs are available for them?

Well here is what you need to know…..

 

In the UK there are two options OnCampus and Off-Campus jobs are available.

On-campus jobs are available mostly on the different campuses of universities. You can work as a library assistant, computer lab assistant, laboratory assistant, receptionist, gym, office boy, data entry, call center maintenance, cafeteria, campus guide, etc. Campus jobs are easy and save a lot of time for students. But getting these kinds of jobs can be difficult because the person who is applying must have good communication skills and basic knowledge. Also, the number of positions available for campus jobs is limited. So chances of getting the profile rejected are high.

On the other hand, Off-campus jobs are very common in the UK among international students. You can work as a part-timer in restaurants/ cafes, convenient stores, supercenters, retail in different positions such as barista, cashier, customer service, factory/warehouse jobs, sales associates, dishwasher, housekeeper, delivery boy/ courier service, etc. These jobs are easy to get. You just need to give your resume directly to the manager or someone responsible for it.

And don’t forget that, not all jobs are easy. Whatever the job, sometimes you have to work harder and harder to finish the target or goals but the result would be amazing. 

Many students make enough money with these jobs to pay the tuition fees, living expenses, bills, transportation charges, etc. They also become more confident, stronger, and responsible by doing these types of jobs. Even after graduation, this will avoid the initial stage of fear, shyness, or weird feeling of communicating with people you are meeting and working with.

In some stores, especially in the supermarkets, retail and postal service, seasonal jobs are available. These jobs are very flexible and can be based on a contract

For example,

The Christmas season is one of the best ways to get these jobs as the arrangements, celebrations, and decorations start before that. Most of the stores will start to get new seasonal arrivals and they change the entire look, feel, and atmosphere of the store into that. So, to make the best and complete the work on time to welcome the season, these stores hire more employers.

But before you search for any jobs, there are a few things to keep in mind or to remember.

 

  • The first and most important is that you should be enrolled in any full-time program.
  • You can only work for 20 hours per week during the course term.
  • Doing 40 hours per week is only allowed at the time of breaks or holidays.
  • You cannot work as a full-timer without a work permit or post-study work visa.
  • You cannot do self-employment work (freelance) or contract work.
