SUSU run job shop to increase part-time employment opportunities for students
Continuing the campaign to end student poverty Union President David Gilani and VP Welfare Officer Beckie Thomas proposed the opening of a SUSU Job Shop.
Similar to the newly-opened Lettings Agency, this new addition to the Union’s services aims to help students to find part-time work in reputable companies as well as with SUSU and the University of Southampton itself (where possible), so that financial difficulties do not hold
students back from getting an education.
It has been proposed that the Union should prioritise advertising jobs from companies with ethical employment practices based on criteria identified by the SUSU
BEES (Business Ethics and Environment Students) programme to increase awareness of part-time job opportunities.
