Jobs Board Student Code of Practice

1. University of Suffolk Student Jobs Board shall advertise information about appropriate job vacancies to University of Suffolk  students and alumni. Information may be displayed on our social media accounts and the Jobs Board. Updates will also be emailed to those students that have registered with the service and set up email updates. Details on how to register can be found on the Jobs Board homepage.

2. University of Suffolk Student Jobs Board will endeavour to provide students with employment information that is as up-to-date and as accurate as possible. However, all students must confirm for themselves through the employer's contact details that this information is accurate. All information given is in good faith and is based on information supplied by the employer and notified to the University of Suffolk Careers Service.

3. It is the responsibility of students to ensure they have the relevant skills and qualifications required for a particular post before applying for it. Students will also ensure that all applications are honest and accept that false claims and statements are not in anyones best interest.

4. The University of Suffolk Jobs Board will not disclose the names, addresses or telephone numbers of students without first seeking consent and shall conform to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), the Data Protection Act (2018) and any subsequent related Acts.

5. The University of Suffolk Students' Union and University of Suffolk Student Services will endeavour to provide information about employment issues, such as; work requirements, for example, visa restrictions, Income Tax, National Insurance and the effect of earnings on benefits or, where appropriate, direct the student to another source that can offer more specialised information and guidance. Visa Nationals have additional rules regarding employment. If you require any further information please contact the International Student Officer

6. If a student is dissatisfied with the employer, the University of Suffolk Students' Union and University of Suffolk Student Services will endeavour to offer guidance and support. If a student believes an employer to be in breach of the Code of Practice or employment law, the University of Suffolk Students' Union Advice Centre and University of Suffolk Student Services can assist the student with an employer related dispute, referring on if necessary.

7. Students requiring information or guidance on a range of issues not directly relating to a particular vacancy can access guidance and help from the Student Services team. Appointments can be arranged in the Infozone for queries such as:

  • CV Writing
  • Covering letters
  • Job hunting
  • Mock interviews
  • Careers guidance
  • Financial support

For further information please contact the Infozone on 01473 338833.

8. Students are expected to be aware of their own study commitments and not to take on employment that will adversely affect their academic work. Students should make clear to any prospective employer what their study commitments are likely to be. The National Union of Students (NUS) recommends that full time students work no more than 16 hours per week during the semester.

All information advertised by the University of Suffolk Careers Jobs Board is done so in good faith. Unfortunately it is impossible for University of Suffolk Careers to vet all employers and vacancies. University of Suffolk Careers makes every effort to ensure that any information given is true and accurate at the time of disclosure. It accepts no liability for the accuracy or otherwise of any information published on behalf of prospective employers.
University of Suffolk Careers online Jobs Board is not an agency and employers may advertise and recruit employees from a number of sources, including the University of Suffolk Jobs Board. University of Suffolk  accepts no liability for the actions of students and employers.


A Careers Adviser is available for information, advice and careers guidance.
