More Information

Departments and Schools across the University of Salford and external employers submit their recruitment needs to Unitemps so that potential recruits can be identified, recruited, issued working hours and paid.

Unitemps works to ensure that students do not work too many hours per week during teaching periods, to help students not exceed limits set by Tier 4 visas (taking account of hours of work within and external to the University combined) and to ensure that students workng through Unitemps are paid at least the minimum wage when working for external employers or the living wage if working for the University of Salford.

Unitemps has replaced other methods previosuly used by the University of Salford to employ students and graduates on a part-time and temporary basis, including 13 week casual contracts and one-off fees and expenses forms.

The Unitemps branch will grow as we sell recruitment agency services to external employers and grow internal demand for employing students and graduates.

Anyone registering with Unitemps is asked to disclose any other work they are doing for the university and for external employers and to notify Unitemps staff if these working hours per week change or end.

Students on Tier 4 visas

Please note that students on Tier 4 visas can only be offered working hours in any Monday to Sunday time period which does not exceed 20 hours per week at any time of year. This 20 hour weekly maximum includes any other hours of work carried out in any other roles inside and outside the  University of Salford.
