Student Promoter Jobs


We have many new services and products in the pipeline for you (including mobile phones, airtime, bank accounts, loans, translation courses etc). For now, we have teamed up with “The Skills Studio” to bring you work related courses that will help you develop your skills for specific Jobs. The courses are offered to you at a discount and we will send you R100 once you complete the course.

This course is aimed at Promoters!

By taking this course (11 Modules) and passing the 2 hour Test, you will be certified with us and will obtain a high ranking, meaning you will be more likely to get work! Just state you have passed the Promotions Exam on any application.

Further courses to follow!

Rent-a-Student currently has requirements for a number of students to assist with translations. In particular, we are looking for Portuguese and Mandarin speaking students who also have great English. Bearing in mind the overall population and number of minority group students, it would appear that word has not reached large groups of students that Rent-a-Student exists.

Can we please ask you ALL to make an effort to let your fellow students know about us. In particular students from minority groups. Remember, the more students we have, the more job opportunities we get. Further, we will be launching new products and services over the coming period and can negotiate better rates with suppliers if we can show them we have more students!!

So, please pass on the word! We are doing over 1,000 placements a month most months now.

Student Jobs


Just a quick post on the above topics.

First up, each and every job Rent-a-Student post is 100% genuine. At present, we post about 1,000 positions a month and we try especially hard to find those “work from home jobs”. We will NEVER ask any student for payment to do a job. In fact, never ever pay anyone for the promise of work.

Operationally, we check your CV / Resume / Photograph and forward suitable candidates to the employer. Normally, the employer takes our choice of students and all works well. Sometimes however, the employer will have certain requirements e.g. they are promoting at a women’s only event, in which case they may only want females students.

The point is, when you apply for jobs, you should ALWAYS include a CV and a photograph. It may be wrong, but most employers ar more inclined to offer a job to a student with a photograph than one without! We (Rent-a-Student) will NEVER discriminate in any way, but these are facts that cannot be ignored.

So, write a short CV today (include a photograph if you can – in the CV) and save on the website. You can use this to apply for more jobs in future. If you need the CV removed, please send us a request and we will remove within 24 hours.



Can we ask you to please complete the following for a chance to win R500!

Promoters and Expo Staff


We have a slightly different form for 2017 promoters. Please view HERE

Please note that we will select students who complete the new form first. We are also about to launch a promo club course that will help all promoters. More on this later in June.

In the past 2 months we have done over 200 promo jobs, so please sign up and remember you must also be registered to be offer work. This is now being implemented.

Good Luck!
