Jobshop is Moving!!

Due to increased demand for our service, we are moving to the Central Plaza next to Essentials.

Virtual Jobs Fair 2014

Timed to coincide with the start of the new academic year, Kent Union Jobshop will be running an online Jobs Fair from Monday 29th September 2014 to Friday 31st October 2014.


What is Jobshop and what do we do?

Kent Union Jobshop is a completely free service provided by Kent Union for students studying at The University of Kent in Canterbury and Medway to help you find employment while you study.

Our aim to provide all students with access to job opportunities that will enhance your future employability.

We have all sorts of jobs including admin, IT, bar & catering, teaching, health & care, retail and more. 

By signing up with Jobshop this is what you will get:  

Email Alerts - 

Our Jobs of the Week email is just a snap shot of what's on offer.  These emails are sent out every Friday.

Exclusive access to our Jobs Board - 

By signing up to Jobshop you also have exclusive access to our Jobs Board which is for Kent students only.  The website has full details of all our jobs on it.  We update the website weekly, sometimes daily.  We recommend that you log in and check jobs at least twice a week if you are seriously job hunting to ensure that you don't miss out.

Facebook - (search for jobshopkent)

Have you liked us on Facebook yet? We update Facebook by posting jobs available in the local area with direct links to their website, jobs page or advert so that you can apply to the company directly online.  These jobs aren't available on our Jobs Board because these jobs tend to be with large local companies and are available to everyone, not just Kent students (so be quick to apply if you see anything of interest!).

On Facebook we also share tips on job hunting, CV's and interviews.

When you like the page you also need to tick "Get Notifications" so if you have already liked our page please go back and check whether you have ticked "Get Notifications", otherwise you will miss out on most posts. 

It's pretty simple and takes about 3 seconds. Just hover your mouse on the LIKED button beneath the cover photo and you will see a "Get Notifications" option. Click it. That's it.

Happy job hunting!
