Part-time jobs are a great way to boost your income. Many students need a part-time job to get them through their studies, but the university recommends that full-time students work no more than 12–15 hours per week in paid employment. Most jobs will give you valuable work experience and you might get a job that relates to your study.
Start with the university's Vacancy Service. It is a database of opportunities. The vacancies are suitable for students who wish to work around their studies.
You can get advice from the Careers Service on finding a part-time job.
Paying the right tax
If you have a job you’ll be required to pay income tax and national insurance. The amount you pay depends on how much you earn and your tax status. Everyone can earn a certain amount of income each year which they do not have to pay tax on.
The Low Incomes Tax Reform Group has some very useful advice and information specifically directed at students.
You can find out more about tax and national insurance on HMRC's website.
