Call into the Jobshop in the next week or two and you could be a winner!
If you already have a job, then you could be Student Employee of the Year!
Visit the Jobshop and you may hear us talking about Sooty - we are not discussing the orange furry glove puppet - but using our shorthand for SEOTY.
This is a national award which is open to all students throughout the UK who work in a part-time job alongside their studies. We are very keen to promote the Student Employee of the Year award as it recognises and rewards students who not only undertake their degree studies but who also hold down a part-time job.
So between now and the middle of April we are putting all our efforts into ensuring that employers (including local businesses, Union and University departments) are aware of the competition and are inviting them to nominate the many students who contribute their time, skills and experience to the local economy.
This year we have a particular challenge on our hands, as in 2014 Lewis Yates, a UoS student , was both the National and Overall winner of SEOTY and the Welcome Desk in the Students’ Union also won National Student Employer of the Year – therefore big shoes to fill! You can see what Lewis had to say about SEOTY at: https://www.youtube.com/
So if you are reading this and are a student with a part-time job or are an employer with student employees, please take a moment to follow the link: http://www.tinyurl.com/seotyaward, find out more about the award and don’t delay – get nominating today (nominations close 5pm on 17 April)
If you are still looking for a part-time job, be sure that you keep in touch with the Jobshop via our social media – we are now on Facebook (/jobshopuos) and Twitter (@shefjobshop) and in the run up to Easter we are giving away crème (or caramel) eggs to any new followers. So like us or follow us or call into the Jobshop to sign up for myVacancies and you can claim your egg – available first come, first served and supplies are going down rapidly…………… We use our social media to highlight new vacancies, early closing dates, last minute jobs and anything else that might be of interest to jobhunting students.
The Jobshop will be open throughout the Easter vacation (excepting Friday 3 and Monday 6 April) so why not call in and see us and walk away with a free crème egg – and lots of hints and tips on finding a part-time job!
