    Do some research and find out where the SU and the Uni advertise. Read up on their procedures and apply. If you see someone doing a job you are interested in and you think they are a student, then make a polite enquiry.

    Find out what jobs are available and where you would like to work. If you like bar work then do that if not look for something else. What will you enjoy or be good at?

    There are more than bar jobs, apply for the one that best suits you. Your uni and SU should know where the vacancies are advertised.
