Job Opportunities for Partners

Finding work in the UK

If your partner has permission to work in the UK, working can be a good way to meet local people and make friends, as well as earn extra money.

It may be difficult at first to find work in your area of expertise, so you may have to consider a greater range of potential jobs than you would do in your home country.

Registering with the University’s Temporary Employment Service (TES) may be a good way to get started. TES provides temporary work opportunities throughout the University and its Colleges.

These are typically short-term cover for staff absences or temporary additional work, and can be in the areas of secretarial, administrative and library work, IT, finance, event planning, catering, cleaning and general maintenance.

Partners and dependents of University staff are also entitled to visit the Careers Service for advice.

 

Volunteering in the UK

Volunteering means working unpaid by giving your time and skills for free. Voluntary work can be a great way to learn new skills, gain experience for your CV and be involved in something worthwhile in the local community.

In addition to the OPdA’s Volunteering Scheme, the University of Cambridge hosts a wide range of volunteering opportunities, including:
