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.

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 skills, enthusiasm and creativity.

What will I 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
  • Managing the HSF Facebook and Instagram pages for your university
  • Sharing information and amplifying our impact on your campus

Key dates

  • Apply between: 1  – 31 January 2021 (open to first-year students and second-year students on a four-year course)
