Looking for a new place to work that works around your studies? 

Looking for a fun place to work?

Looking to find a job which values it’s staff and pays the living wage?

Your Union is hiring bar staff for Paisley Union!

You aren’t just bar staff, you represent the Union! You’ll learn about every part of the Union and will be able to help students of UWS, whether that be to just to make a coffee, pour a pint or to direct them to the other services the Union provides.
