Benefits to getting involved 

Through its variety of roles, the Scheme offers you plenty of opportunities to  develop transferable skills whilst earning some money – it's paid £11.68 per hour (including holiday pay)  – and making new friends. The scheme is very rewarding, flexible and fits around your studies. You will develop skills in communication, team work and problem solving. 

When does it take place? 

Roles within the Scheme are offered throughout the year. Marketing and Events ambassadors are added to an internal database available to members of the Marketing and External Relations department and you will be contacted when new work assignments become available. Work assignments will be offered based on the requirements of the role, interest shown and your availability. These job opportunities will primarily be for Events and Marketing shifts.

The Schools Liaison and Social Media teams will have further assessments for their shifts and will have separate databases. 

Where does it take place? 

Depending on the work assignment, you will have the opportunity to work on campus (e.g. Open Days, Open Evenings, campus tours, etc), online (Unibuddy, online events, etc.) or at external venues (higher education fairs, school and college visits, etc) in London.

Who can apply? 

We accept applications from all current undergraduate or postgraduate City students. To become an Ambassador you must:

  • Complete the online application form
  • Be successful in a virtual assessment
  • Be prepared to register with Unitemps, and are thus required to be eligible to work in this country.
