At Essex you will have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience while putting a bit of extra cash in your pocket, through a wide range of paid jobs and internships. Working while you study can give you a head start in developing the skills you need for your chosen career, as well as the chance to make enduring connections.
As part of our cost of living support package for students, we have expanded the employment opportunities available on campus and increased the number of hours of work available in both Colchester and Southend. Roles at our campuses include Student Ambassadors, Frontrunners, accommodation representatives, shop assistants, catering staff and much more.
We have our own job vacancy board, Essex CareerHub, which shares opportunities we think our students will be interested in, and it also includes local employer vacancies. You'll still have access to it after you graduate too.
Our Essex Interns programme provides our students with an opportunity to work with a local employer as a paid intern in a temporary position, to gain experience in a particular field.
At Essex we want you to feel able to explore your passions and interests through paid employment where you can develop your knowledge and skills in a real world environment. As an Essex Intern, you'll get the opportunity to broaden your network in the industry of your choice, and add valuable experience to your CV.
Essex Interns have previously worked in a variety of sectors, from charity to commercial, creative to technical, marketing to IT.
