MDXSU have run our Community Placement Scheme for two years. The scheme provides paid opportunities for students to put their studies and skills into practice, while also having a positive impact in the local community. The scheme is intended to benefit students, placement partners, the university and the students' union, and make Barnet a better place to live for everyone.


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 a placement, you will boost your employability through application of your skills while also developing your experience of the real world of work. Each placement is approximately 4 hours per week for 6 weeks, but this may vary. All MDXSU placements are paid in line with the London Living Wage Foundation (£10.55 per hour), and also provide holiday pay.


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. If shortlisted, you may be invited to attend a short interview - a good opportunity to polish those skills so you can stand out to future employers.
