Find yourself a student summer job in London with our help

As the summer months approach there is always a crazy rush from students to try to be the first to get their foot in the door of a new student summer job in London. With so many students now living in the London area, the competition for summer jobs can be fierce at times. The search doesn't need to be difficult though... with a little bit of planning you should be able to get yourself out there and into a job with minimum fuss.

Your best chances of finding a student summer job in London will come from the retail sector. Due to the fact that the retail industry is such big business in a city the size of London, it's no surprise to learn that the majority of summer jobs in the city tend to come from working in stores.

While it certainly helps to work in a store that sells something that you have a genuine interest in, this isn't always possible, so we recommend you apply to as many places as possible and simply take whatever you can get to build up your experience level.

Student summer jobs in retail pay in the region of £5.93 to £6.10 per hour, and it's always worth remembering that since you're going to be working with the public on a daily basis, you're going to need to retail a friendly demeanour at all times.

To make your search a little bit easier, we recommend focussing on some of the major shopping centres in the area, including;

  • Westfield London Shopping Centre, Ariel Way
  • Covent Garden Market, Covent Garden Piazza
  • Whiteleys, 144-151 Queensway
  • Ealing Broadway Centre, Ealing
