If you're looking for a way to give back to the community, inspire other students, develop your employability skills, and have a job which earns you money whilst fitting around your studies - then becoming a Student Ambassador could be for you!
There are lots of opportunities to become a Student Ambassador whilst studying at CCCU. You could work at recruitment events, help inspire young people, represent your course, and create social media content.
You can choose to work for any of the roles, or all of them, and full training and support is provided. Plus, the roles have flexible hours that suit you and fit around your studies.
Here are some of the ways you can make a difference in the community by becoming a Student Ambassador, and joining a network of like-minded individuals at Christ Church:
Do you enjoy the buzz of a busy campus? Our Student Helpers are the friendly faces in the red shirts you may have seen when you first visited Canterbury Christ Church before starting your studies.
You will regularly work with the events team over the course of an open day or offer holder day to guide future students around campus and make the most of their visit. A variety of roles are offered during the events, so there are plenty of opportunities to develop a wide range of skills, represent the university to a high standard and make friends. There are also smaller ad-hoc opportunities throughout the duration of this role in preparation for our events.
Being a School and College Engagement (SCE) Ambassador is all about helping students realise their potential. Through interactive events the university experience comes to life for students from 11 up to 19. Whether it’s on a campus taster day, or a personal statement workshop, your job is to be fun, engaging, and supportive. You’ll work alongside recent graduates to deliver inspiring, aspiration raising workshops and talks to students from local schools and colleges. If you believe that you can have a positive effect on young people, help to shape their future and enable their academic aspirations, then we’d like to hear from you.
Our Faculty Student Ambassadors are experts in their field of study, knowing the ins and outs of their course and always ready to answer questions from prospective Christ Church students. If you are passionate about your course and want others to see how great it is, then this is the opportunity for you!

"I enjoy being a Student Ambassador because I get to work with teenagers and give them guidance on future paths as well as educate others about my course and its relevance." - Clara, Student Ambassador
