Student Traders is one of the University’s latest projects. But what exactly is it? How can it benefit you? And most importantly, how can you get involved? The Student Traders team answer these questions and give an insight into the initiative.
Since launching a few weeks ago, Student Traders has almost doubled in size as students, staff and the local community alike are demanding the skills University of Exeter students have to offer. So for those of you who missed our launch here’s what we’re all about…
The Student Traders website is for students who are currently studying at Exeter and for students who graduated up to three years ago, to showcase and advertise their businesses, products, community skilled services and trades.
It has primarily been designed to provide a FREE advertising platform for students who want to find employment through their extra-curricular skills. This means that you can effectively create a stream of income for yourself whilst you study, just from doing what you love and what you’re good at.
Student Traders isn’t just limited to extra-curricular based skills though, if you’re a budding entrepreneur then we could help you too. We already promote a range of businesses on our website from student run clothing companies to homemade poetry CD’s.
So how can you get involved? Check out our website at www.exeter.ac.uk/studenttraders and see what we’re all about. Then, when you’ve thought of a skill you could provide or have your business website up together, just contact us – either through the website itself or at our email address:
Keep checking up on our site as we will be introducing new businesses and trades all the time and we also have some exciting events in the pipeline.
We are really open to feedback so please do get in touch with us if you have any comments or if you would like to find out more.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
