Kingston students in search of part-time work filled the Kingston Hill campus this Wednesday, keen to see what opportunities this year’s job fair had to offer.

There were a number of employers showcasing work opportunities, such as, Equality Enterprise, Challengers, Office Angels, and Featherstone Leigh Kingston.

Muhammad Shafi, a first-year Business Management student, said that he found the event very helpful: “It can be really hard to find a part-time job and manage it with your schedule and I am very glad the university is organising such events.”

The stalls were open for all students from midday and the consultations continued until 3:30pm.

Another company with a stall at the fair was Go Student, which offers students the opportunity to work as a personal tutor from home.

“I was not expecting to see such interesting jobs here and I am really hoping to become a tutor. It sounds fun and it is also remote which is super convenient.”, said Simran, an Entrepreneurship, and Innovation Management Student.

“You can also work with children, work in hospitality…there are plenty of good options and everything is flexible and comes with tons of benefits.”

Keen for recruits, Go Student prepared gifts for everyone that completed their application.

Paul Wilson, representing The Challengers, an organisation that offers jobs as Play and Youth workers across Richmond and Kingston said he thought the fair was very successful this year and was happy to see how engaged all the students were.

Although the fair is over, students can still send their applications to all of the companies’ websites.
