Welcome to Worklink


Worklink is the University of Birmingham’s casual recruitment agency, dedicated to helping students find flexible, part-time work right here on campus.

Our team enables students to develop new skills through the University’s top opportunities, boost their employability, and reach their potential with tailored support and guidance from our experts. We’re also proud to lend our recruitment expertise to University staff, helping them to find only the best and brightest candidates for their internal vacancies. 


Legal Requirements

  • The University has a duty to prevent illegal working in the UK by carrying out prescribed document checks on people before employing them to ensure they are lawfully allowed to work. All students must register with Worklink at least 24 hours prior to commencing work.
  • The University must not offer or permit hours that would cause the student to be in breach of their visa conditions.  The Home Office consider this to be a breach of the Immigration Act, 1971 Section 25(1) – ‘Facilitating the commission of a breach of immigration law’.

“Worklink has helped me to enhance my interpersonal skills and become a more effective communicator. Having worked a range of roles through Worklink, as a student experience ambassador, an ambassador on open days, during Welcome Week and UoBe festival, I strongly feel these opportunities helped me to grow in confidence.”
