How to apply

We have two application processes for our part-time staff, depending on which role(s) you are looking to apply for. Please read the details below for each role, to find out how to apply -   

 

Rubix Team Member

Application Process

The Students' Union holds two Rubix part-time staff recruitment events - one in the Autumn and one in the Spring semester.

Autumn Date: Thursday 5th October - see form at the bottom of this page

Our recruitment events take the form of group assessments followed by a short one to one interview.  Competition is very high for the number of part-time vacancies we have available, so the selection process involves scoring candidates in the assessment and interviews. 

​Our supervisors carry out the roles of assessor and interviewer.  Those candidates with the highest scores will be offered part-time jobs.  New members of staff will be given induction and on-the-job training.  They will also be given the opportunity to undertake BIIAB accredited training courses which, if successfully passed, will give them a nationally recognised qualification. 

 

Tips for candidates attending Rubix recruitment events:

  • You don't need to bring your CV or anything with you to the recruitment events.

  • You will be put into a group and asked to undertake a group assessment exercise

  • The group exercises are fun but remember we are looking at your skills as a team player; how you communicate; listening skills and your attitude. It's important you contribute as much as you can in order to show your skills to the assessor.

  • During the one to one interviews think of how you will get across information about yourself.

  • What previous work experience have you had?  Have you been a volunteer?

  • What skills can you bring as a member of our part time staff team?

  • Don't worry if you haven't worked before as experience is not an essential requirement to work for the Students' Union. 

  • Try to relax and be yourself.
