Student employees

When employing students to work on an hourly basis, the person doing the hiring must first check if the student has already worked for KTH for an extended period of time, as LAS must be applied for all hourly appointments. Contact HR if you would like to employ a student on an hourly basis.

Before employing someone, you as a supervisor, teaching assistant or course assistant, must send the student’s personal data to HR who in turn controls if an employment is possible. If the student can be employed, HR will draft an employment confirmation that must be signed by the Head of School and the student before you can begin time reporting.
