Funds available to support departments employing students on campus

Thinking of recruiting? Why not employ a student through the Work-Study Scheme? You could be eligible for match-funding of up to £500!

The Careers & Employability Service (CES) has been awarded some funding by the Development Office’s Student Projects Grant to help increase the number of student employment opportunities across the Canterbury and Medway campuses.

This funding will enable CES to match-fund Academic Schools and Professional Services who advertise eligible paid roles for students this academic year (up to a maximum of £500 per new school/department). For example: if you recruit a student for 10 hours at £8.99 per hour,
we could pay half of this amount, £44.95 (funding is limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis).

Are you considering recruiting soon? Do you have a role that would suit a student or could be amended to employ a student? If you are interested in employing a Work-Study Scheme student, contact Hannah Greer on or 01227 824038.
