Jobs at London Met

London Met has its own graduate intern scheme, where we place our graduates in available positions within the University. Or you can take advantage of our in-house temping agency where all relevant work opportunities on campus are offered to our students first. Part of London Met’s goal is to recycle as much of your fees back to you as possible.

Our student ambassadors play a vital role in helping to promote life at London Met. In addition to helping at our open days and Higher Education (HE) Fairs, as an ambassador you could raise the aspirations of students from underrepresented backgrounds by visiting local schools and colleges to talk about your own university experience. You could also become a Success Coach, London Met offers opportunities for second and third year students to assist first year students in getting adjusted to university life.

What's more, all of these roles are paid and will look fantastic on your CV.

Volunteering

London Met’s volunteering team offers you the chance to get involved in our vibrant programme and gain experience in community-based organisations, which can give your CV a strong boost.


"I think that the Careers Service at London Met was excellent not only in supporting me at the beginning of my career but also in developing the job search skills which I still use today."

Fabio Massaro, BA Marketing graduate

"Volunteering is a fantastic way to develop your skills...It allows you to apply what you learn in the classroom to a real-world situation, with tangible results. Not only are you giving back to the organisation and the community, but you get great material for your CV, valuable contacts and a rewarding experience. Voluntary organisations want you to get the most out of your time and often go out of their way to make sure that you develop the skills that you want and need. Showing that you volunteered really lets future employers know that you are reliable and committed."

Camille Acosta, Assistant Project Manager, Rowan Arts
