The ResNet team.

Each year a large number of students join the team to run ResNet. We are now recruiting for both technical and administrative positions for the 08-09 academic year.

A job with ResNet offers competitive pay (around £10/hour) and excellent experience while working with and helping other Bristol students. It can be hard work but is very enjoyable, a chance to develop your skills, and great experience for future employers.

Jobs available start in September and some continue during term time for the rest of the 08-09 year.

The closing date for applications is 10am, Thursday 22nd May. For more details or to apply please see
