With this mid-semester break commencing and spring nearly upon us, in a bid to get more jobs listed, SJS is reminding
householders that students are keen to help out with tasks such as gardening and cleaning around the house. Business
owners too can use students to get on top of those jobs that need to be done.
Students are finding fewer work opportunities at present as jobs are filled quickly. Students are keen and eager to earn
some money during the Semester holiday break and SJS hopes that the community will get behind the students and contact
SJS to get those jobs done. SJS is encouraging tertiary students looking for work to be checking www.sjs.co.nz for job
listings on a daily basis and to be flexible in the type of work they are looking for.

by SJS are in retail, hospitality, household and office/professional industries. SJS helps students to find a wide range
