Been wondering what are the best summer jobs for undergraduates? Well read on…

When it comes to finding a summer job as an undergraduate, most students are looking for a temporary role where they can start earning straight away, with flexible hours so that they can still enjoy their summer break. We have a whole host of exciting roles that fit the bill, as we work with a wide range of clients in Beauty & Fashion, Luxury Retail, Galleries & Museums, and Events.

If you are outgoing and confident, love chatting to people and are willing to go above and beyond to provide fantastic customer service, we want to hear from you!

Galleries & Museums

We have positions available at many heritage visitor attractions, museums and galleries around London. If you are an historian or an art buff, this could be the perfect fit for you!

Excellent customer service skills are a must for this type of role, as you will need to be able to answer any questions visitors may have, as well as be willing to go the extra mile to ensure they have a fantastic experience. The type of temporary visitor attraction roles we have are retail, front of house, ticketing,  visitor services and ushers. We are particularly interested in people who have an SIA licence for these types of roles.

Luxury retail

Artisan People works alongside numerous luxury beauty, fashion and fragrance clients such as Estée Lauder, L’Oréal, Armani and Chanel. If you love all things luxury retail and would like to spend your summer working with these brands, get in touch and we’ll find your dream role.

We are looking for people who are confident, bubbly and able to stand out from the crowd and chat to passers by. Many of these roles are at temporary pop-ups or on the shop floor in large department stores, so you’ll need to be able to grab the attention of potential customers and entice them to try your products. The most amazing thing about these roles is that you can often choose a shift pattern that is best suited to your summer schedule.


We are always on the lookout for temporary staff to work for our corporate hospitality and events clients. Typical positions include waiters, marshalls, bartenders, visitor information staff, washroom attendants, cloakroom staff and team leaders.
