At Middlesex Students' Union we want students to be at the heart of our local community, and for the local community to see the University at its heart. We want to develop a network of institutions connected by people with a shared interest.

 Over the next two years we will be working with North London Citizens to provide placement opportunities for Middlesex students to work with local community organisations. We want to give students the chance to put their skills to use and make Barnet a better place to live for everyone.

 These opportunities will boost our students employability in lots of ways. They will be able to practically apply the skills they are learning within their studies, as well as being able to develop their experience of the real world of work and social interactions.

We're not asking the world from you, just a few hours once a week for just over a month. The Community Placements are designed to fit around your studies and other commitments - all we ask for is that you give your time and energy to a local business, faith or community group.

While on placement you will be an ambassador for Middlesex and for the Students' Union. You will be a part of something exciting and making a difference to your local area.

All MDXSU placements are paid in line with the London Living Wage Foundation (£9.75 per hour).

 

If you are interested in a placement you will need to complete an easy application form and attend a short interview - a good opportunity to polish those skills so you can stand out to future employers.

To apply for any of our roles you will need to register with Middlesex Unitemps system which is the portal through which you can apply for all part time work in and around campus.
