Our Student Ambassador Scheme


A great way for you to inspire others and earn as you learn

At Greenwich we have a team of over 300 Student Ambassadors who support the work of staff across the university, and you can get involved too. It's a great career development opportunity which allows you to broaden your experience, enhance your appeal to future employers, make new friends and enjoy flexible part-time employment whilst you study.

Student Ambassadors are involved in a variety of projects including:

  • Mentoring in schools,
  • Careers Fairs and exhibitions,
  • University Open Days, campus tours and faculty taster days,
  • Awards Ceremonies,
  • Student Connect,
  • AccessAbility,
  • Care Leaver support
  • Office-based administrative roles
  • Supporting the university's marketing campaigns.

Being a Student Ambassador is about being professional, having fun and using your passion for your course and our university to inspire others.  

Our Student Ambassadors are the universities' most powerful brand advocates. It's all about being a role model and sharing your personal experiences in higher education to support and advise prospective students on university life. 

'It's great to work as a Student Ambassador since it allows you to learn a bit more about your university. It's fun too as you meet a lot of people from different areas of the university.'
Katrina Domina

As a Student Ambassador you'll gain specialist training and build up a range of experiences comparable to those in the workplace, including experiencing our recruitment process and developing skills such as communication and team working, which you can add to your CV.

You'll also develop a professional network and have the opportunity to gain valuable references, which can help you stand out from other applicants in your future career. As an extended member of the Employability and Careers Service you will also benefit from additional employability and mentoring support, from a team who cares about your career development as much as you do!    

'Being an Ambassador has been an invaluable experience and helped me acquire new skills and work with a diverse range of people in a variety of settings. I have used my experiences to enhance my career prospects and gain employment in a similar sector...I only wish I could continue!!!'
Jillian Isaac

Student Ambassadors are involved in work opportunities involving a variety of age groups both on and off-campus. Work opportunities are available across the year including evenings, weekends and during holiday periods. The scheme is flexible so you can work around your studies and apply for roles you are interested in based around your availability and academic timetable.

'I have enjoyed every minute of working with the team for the last three years as it has allowed me to gain so much confidence and experience a range of opportunities that otherwise would not be available.'
