Student Ambassador Schemes
As an applied and inclusive University, a core component of our Graduate Recruitment agenda is our commitment to providing you with the opportunity of meaningful work experience while you study. Part of the way we do this is by giving you the opportunity of paid part time, casual work across the different areas of the University via our Student Ambassador Schemes.
This is a great way to not only earn as you learn, but also to develop and reflect on the skills and competencies required to be successful in the workplace after you graduate and to network with both staff and other students across the University.
We have a varied set of Student Ambassador Schemes available, you are free to apply for all schemes in which you meet the eligibility criteria. Being part of these schemes will give you experience of working in a wide range of University roles including helping with things such as open days, employer events, start of trimester activities, international airport welcome days, graduation days, data entry, professional social media activity, telephone campaign work and much more!
Our schemes offer competitive pay rates, real flexibility on the hours you work and access to excellent personal and skills development opportunities throughout the year.
See below for further details on each of our schemes and find out how to apply.
