First year students can apply to take on the campus ambassador role during their second year of study. As a campus ambassador, you’ll need the passion and communication skills to inspire other students, both in person and on social media. In doing this, you’ll help your peers elevate their ambition by educating them about the opportunities available at Herbert Smith Freehills.
Being a campus ambassador offers you work experience, the chance to hone key transferable skills for any professional career and gain a unique insight into our firm; as well as the chance to start building up your reputation and your legal network.
What we look for
You don’t need to study law to be a campus ambassador. In fact, we welcome students from a wide range of academic backgrounds. We're looking for people with strong communication and networking skills, enthusiasm and creativity.
What will I be doing?
The position of campus ambassador provides you with invaluable experience, gives you further insight into the firm, prepares you for the vacation scheme application process, and involves:
- Planning activities and organising events
- Growing your professional and personal network
- Managing the HSF Facebook and Instagram pages for your university (including creating and posting content, as well as community management)
- Sharing information and amplifying our impact on your campus.
