What you will be doing

The positon 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

• Sharing information and amplifying our impact on your campus

Key dates

• Apply between: 1 January – 31 January 2020 (open to first-year students and second-year students on a four-year course)

To apply, you’ll need to complete an online application form and blended online assessment. If you’re offered the role and decide to apply for a vacation scheme, you won’t need to retake the online assessment and we’ll fast track your application to review stage.

What we look for

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 plan for their future careers 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.

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 skills, enthusiasm and creativity.
