Cardiff University Job Shop

The Jobshop is the student employment service owned and run by Cardiff University Students’ Union and Cardiff University. It was established in the early ’90s and was one of the first student employment services to be set up in the UK. Over the past 20 years we have become a respected and trusted service used by students and employers alike. We are based on the 4th floor of the Students’ Union building.

Looking for casual employment while studying at Cardiff University?

The Jobshop is a free student employment service which aims to find casual employment for registered Cardiff University students. Opportunities are available within the University, the Students’ Union and with local employers.

Assignments offered include bar, catering, admin / clerical, retail and manual handling work amongst others. These can vary in length from just a few hours work to more regular on-going work. For the majority of our vacancies you do not need any prior experience, just lots of enthusiasm and willingness to learn!


Before you are able to use the service, you’ll need to register with the Jobshop by bringing your student ID card and your passport (non-EEA students must also bring their visa/biometric card and proof of term dates) along to the Jobshop on the 4th floor of the Students’ Union building. We’ll then add your details to our database and you’ll start to receive regular updates of our job opportunities. Please be aware that you need to be registered at least 24 hours before undertaking any work through the Jobshop.
