Part-time work

From independent bars and restaurants to supermarket superstores, Liverpool is a bustling city full of opportunities.

Part-time work not only helps you earn extra money while you're studying, but it's also a great way to gain work experience, develop new skills and meet people. Liverpool Hope University offers part-time jobs here on campus through Hope Works. In addition, Liverpool has plenty of part- time work that is local to both campuses in shops, bars, restaurants and more.

If you're not sure where to start looking why not try:

  • Online job searches - websites like Indeed and Reed have large volumes of job vacancies
  • Independent Liverpool Jobs - job vacancies from independent businesses across the city
  • Business Social Media Pages - small organisations sometimes advertise roles this way
  • Supermarkets - Liverpool has a few big supermarkets who take on lots of part time staff
  • Business or Shopping Parks - sometimes have a website for stores to post vacancies in one place 

Hope Works

Hope Works is the University's on-campus jobs service. We connect students studying at Liverpool Hope with a wide range of part time, paid work opportunities, all based on campus at either Hope Park or Creative Campus.

The Hope Works opportunities are open to all registered students at Liverpool Hope and the range of roles is varied. Previous jobs have included Student Ambassadors, Catering Assistants, Writing and Study Skills Mentors and Sports Coaches.

Hope Works offers students the opportunity to:

  • Earn a wage and supplement their income
  • Develop skills and experiences that are valued by employers
  • Gain application and interview experience
  • Become more involved in university activities
  • Gain experience to put on your CV
  • Meet other students

Balancing part time work and study

As a university student your priority should be to graduate with a good degree so part time work should support your studies, not interfere with it. If you find that you're working instead of attending lectures or seminars you might need some help balancing your commitments. Having a chat with a careers adviser can really help, you can make an appointment on My Careers Centre.
