Part-time jobs for students
Every year the Libraries employ senior and postgraduate students as part-time Student Assistants in various departments and branches of the Libraries.
Library departments and branch libraries recruit Student Assistants independently, so when enquiring about a job, you need to approach the section or branch library where you feel you would like to work.
Recruitment is usually in October / November for the following year, however this varies in some sections and branches. Look out for the advertisements for these posts on Library notice boards and the Libraries’ website.
Hours of work: 10 – 20 hours per week at times that suit both your timetable and ours.

Students may apply at any of the sections or branches listed below. Ask for an application form at the desk where you want to work or download the form below. Completed application forms must be submitted to the branch or section where you are applying to work.

The Libraries also recruit students at other times during the year–including the long vacations–if there are special projects taking place that require extra hands. During vacations, students may be employed to work between 10 and 37.5 hours per week. Vacancies for Student Assistants needed for special projects will be advertised on the Libraries’ notice boards and website.
