Student jobs

Birmingham is second only to London in terms of the total number of start ups (more than 45,000 businesses in total) and there are over 1,000 shops within a 20-minute walk in the city centre (Business Birmingham). This means there are plenty of opportunities to get a part time job, and we’re at the heart of all these opportunities – right in the city centre.
