Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are friendly, enthusiastic and helpful students who represent the University in a number of ways.

As a Student Ambassador you’ll typically be trained by the Communications and Participation department, but you may find yourself working for other departments or academic schools around the University.

Different types of Student Ambassador

We’ve broken down our Student Ambassador scheme into different types of ambassadors specialising in particular activities or areas of work. It is possible to work as more than one type of ambassador – in fact we encourage it!

Event Ambassador

You’ll be the friendly face of the University at events designed to raise aspirations and awareness of higher education. You’ll also support preparation and set-up for events. Types of events include Open Days, Applicant Days, school Taster Days and corporate events such as Professorial Lectures.

Course Ambassador

Your work will be similar to that of an Event Ambassador but you’ll often be working at course specific events, talking to potential students about the particular course you are studying. You’ll also often be working directly for your academic school.

Unibuddy Ambassador

You’ll represent the University on the Unibuddy platform. Chatting to potential students from around the world - answering their questions about study, life and your experience at Worcester.

Digital Ambassador

You’ll create digital content that gives potential students a genuine, first-hand insight into life as a student at Worcester. This could include creating Instagram Stories, writing blogs, producing vlogs and taking great photos to be used on social media.

Digital Design Ambassador

Specially selected for your digital design skills you’ll work to a set brief and produce creative for HTML emails, digital display ads, plasma screens and more.

Other areas of work

Many students also work in administrative roles across the campus. Sometimes we are able to match skills with quite specialised jobs (for example, our top journalism students can work alongside the University’s Press Officer). The role of Student Ambassador offers flexible work opportunities for our students.

How to apply

We recruit Student Ambassadors at various points in the year, often to work in a particular area such as events or digital content creation. To see if we are actively recruiting at the moment, visit our student vacancies page.
