    Where do most British students get part time jobs? Do you care about brands you work for, the "prestige" or are you just looking to earn extra money? I ask as I have not seen many in most waiting jobs.

    Tends to be for the money while you study but some people do care about who they work for, eg they may not want to work for McDonald's despite needing the money.

    I work for Gregg's and have previously worked as Temps for Next and Sainsburys along with permenant job in a small restaurant.

    Typically jobs in retail/high street or restaurants/bars.

    I'd say it's usually a case of looking to earn extra cash working for a company that is flexible i.e. just work weekends and the above categories tend to fit the criteria. Prestige is less of a factor - most part-time jobs can be dressed up pretty well when put on a CV for instance.

    There may also be jobs at the University you're studying at, such as in the Students' Union or as an ambassador.
