“Working for JobShop Temps has allowed me to interact with students I would otherwise not have met and enabled me to have a greater insight into how the University works. Furthermore, it has provided me with invaluable work experience. Having worked in the Library, the on Enrolment Helpdesk and during the Alumni Telephone Campaign, I have gained a well-grounded understanding of the wider workings of UoG. Working for JobShop Temps has given me invaluable experience as part of a large organisation, in areas my course may not have been able to. The working conditions are very student orientated on the flexibility of hours and suit term time commitments and holidays. All of the staff at the Students’ Union are very friendly and helpful and tailor their advice to each student’s needs. JobShop Temps is an invaluable service that has been of huge benefit to me!”
