Almost four years.
Stockton on Tees.
I applied as I wanted a flexible job that I could fit around my studies. The ambassador programme offers a vast array of opportunities across many different sectors, ideal for enhancing my CV. As my course is very small I also wanted to get to know more people across the University to widen my student experience.
I have had the opportunity to work with local and national businesses, including Virgin Money and Burberry. I have worked with young people of all ages in the community, at University and in school settings, including an eight week placement in a SEND school.
I have also worked with NECOP and NERAP as a student mentor, working to raise the aspirations of young people in the North East. My work with NERAP has involved working with young looked-after people and young carers and their families. As part of this I was fortunate to work at various events with NERAP including a three day residential across the five North East universities.
I have had office and admin experience and I have worked at many public-facing events such as open days here at Teesside University and national recruitment events.
The University and the good nature of Teesside folk.
I love the variety of work situations we have access to and I really appreciate the flexible hours of the job. Most of all I like the comradery of the role and just how much my social circle has grown as a result. I have met so many wonderful people from the UK and around the world and my university experience has been so much richer because of my job as a student ambassador.
Do it! You won’t regret it!
