Apply to be an Accommodation Representative

If you are interested in earning a bit of money whilst living in our accommodation then tick the box on your accommodation application form that you are interested in taking part in the University show flat scheme. We will then contact those directly that have been successful (as we only have a set number of designated flats set aside for the Show Flat Scheme). If you are not successful or do not want to be an Accommodation Rep, you will still potentially be living in a show flat and must keep the flat tidy for when events do take place.

What’s involved?

This involves being part of a network of show flats that are available for visitors to view on applicant days, open days, daily campus tours and campus visits. The role is very flexible as you can work as often as you like.

  • You will help our student ambassadors by showing the communal areas of your flat and your bedroom during the visit
  • You will keep the flat in a state of reasonable cleanliness and tidiness when visits are taking place
  • You will be available to answer any questions about your accommodation

What are the benefits?

  • You will get paid for showing your accommodation
  • You will get your flat cleaned before large scale events such as Applicant Days and Open Days
  • You will get the opportunity to work on various occasions for the University; well worth adding to your CV

Want to apply?

  • Candidates must send a CV and attend a compulsory interview/training session
  • You must be eligible to work in the UK and can provide original Right to Work documentation. You must also have a UK bank account
  • You must also have a National Insurance Number
  • Other documentation may be requested upon application
  • If you have any questions before you apply, please email Perry James
