Student Ambassador

The Student Ambassador Scheme at Kingston is a great way of building skills whilst earning money.
Ambassadors' main aims are to share their student experiences with prospective students and the community. They take part in open days and higher education fairs, visit schools and colleges to raise aspirations of young people and publish advice, blogs and videos about the University.

The average pay is £9.37 per hour. Recruitment usually starts towards the end of the first term and will be posted on the Jobs Central.
