Here at YSJSU we love to get students involved in every aspect of what we do, and that includes working for us. Every single year we recruit a batch of first, second & third years into our staff team, under a whole host of roles & departments, and this year we have even more opportunities up for grabs!

To ensure that everyone gets a fair shot at a role, as well as aiming to make the whole experience more enjoyable, we are going to be holding a Recruitment Day on Friday 28th April in the SU Coffee Lounge. The exciting news is that we can now confirm the specific Student and Graduate roles available for the 2017/18 academic year. They are as follows:

We will only process applications which submit all the documents. Closing date for your application is on Thursday 27th April 2017 at 1pm.

Once you have done this, and are successful you will receive an invitation to the recruitment day, which will look a little like this:
