Please be aware that all the Job Shop jobs are extremely popular and likely to be withdrawn from the system because the local employer has been inundated with applications.
All jobs displayed by the Careers Centre are displayed in good faith. Whilst we do our best to vet jobs before they are displayed, it is the responsibility of the job seeker to check the validity of the vacancy and the employer before taking up work. Students are encouraged to familiarise themselves with guidelines surrounding National Minimum Wage and volunteering - especially when gaining work experience.
