The Student Ambassador Team is looking for enthusiastic current students to join its team for the new academic year in September.

Student Ambassadors are often the first point of contact a prospective student has with Brookes; you serve as front-line staff when representing the University. You are expected to provide clear and honest advice and information to all of our external customers. By acting as a positive role model, you will be central in attracting applications from prospective students. You will also work with students from underrepresented backgrounds, supporting them to progress to Brookes.

The team wants to hear from motivated students who are enthusiastic about their university experience and are great at communicating that passion. Your core work includes supporting the University’s seven undergraduate Open and Applicant Days and three postgraduate evenings. You will also be able to deliver campus tours and take part in workshops and talks for schools and colleges. We have lots of opportunities to work on faculty subject interview and induction days to support newly enrolled students. Our team provides virtual and on-campus administrative roles to support different departments across the university.

You don't need any specific experience - just an awareness of what Brookes can offer and a willingness to share your experiences. Ambassadors are paid £11.01 per hour and you will be provided with all the training you need.

As a Student Ambassador you will join the UK Recruitment and Partnerships team, which sits within the Directorate of Marketing, Recruitment and Engagement; a confident and ambitious team of colleagues who apply professional skills and expertise to make every contact count and to make a valued contribution to the University’s objectives. The UK Recruitment and Partnerships team leads the development and delivery of high-quality recruitment events and activities designed to attract and convert a diverse pool of applicants across the University’s undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The team’s activities range from an extensive programme of school and college engagement to large-scale events, which will be both on-campus and virtual.

How to apply

If this sounds like the right job for you, please visit and apply through the Student Ambassador webpage.

If you are successful, you will also need to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check that will be arranged and paid for by us. Please note that if you have lived or travelled abroad for more than three months you will also be required to complete an overseas check before you can start work as an ambassador.

You will need to undertake a Right to Work check which means you will need to show your passport (and visa if a Tier 4 student).

If you have questions about the application process or require more detail about the role, please contact: ambassadorteam@brookes.ac.uk

Applications will close at midnight on Sunday 8 May 2022.
Interviews will take place online from Monday 16 to Friday 20 May 2022.
