Students

Community is proud of its diversity and equality. We represent members and their families across all industries and sectors in the UK. Unlike many other unions that specialise in specific job markets, Community is proud to be an inclusive organisation; welcoming anyone as a member, regardless of the sector they work in, how they work, or where they live. In this section we talk about some of the sectors we currently support.

Whether you’re looking to join our Young Labour Campaign Network, would simply like to be a part of the union movement, or perhaps want to be set-up for the world of work – Community has an offer to suit you.

And if you’re working part-time while studying our advisors are experienced at dealing with issues frequently faced by part-time workers. It might be that you want help trying to negotiate more hours. Or maybe your employer’s trying to change your hours or work location, and you’re worried about it impacting on your studies? As a working student, whatever your situation, we can advise you on your options.

If you’d like to find out more about how Community can support you, you can find out about what we do here.
