Before starting university, I had never heard the job title ‘Brand Ambassador’. However, three years later, having worked as a BA for five different brands including Smirnoff and Virgin Media, I could not be more thankful for what I consider to be the best student job out there.
As students, we all want a job that earns a lot of money but doesn’t take too much of our time, and being a Brand Ambassador is exactly that. Not only that, but it’s so much more fun and diverse compared to your standard Saturday retail job. Being a Brand Ambassador means that no day is the same. It also gives you the opportunity to connect with so many people around campus who you’d never meet otherwise. Each BA role is different, but one thing they all have in common is the social aspect. Working with brands around campus allows you to meet so many people and continues to keep you on your toes. You could be handing out samples at house parties one night and creating social media content the next.
One of the best things about the Student Brand Ambassador jobs is the amount of work you get to do in your pyjamas at home. Because of the importance and popularity of social media amongst students, online marketing is a really big part of working as a BA and, of course, this can all be done from your phone and laptop whilst chilling in bed. The great earnings are the cherry on top. It only takes a bit of effort from you to really see your work pay off, with many roles offering way more than your standard £7-8 an hour job pulling pints.
If you’re looking for a job where you get to pick what hours you work and have the potential to earn loads of money and you enjoy meeting new people, becoming a Brand Ambassador is definitely for you. Even better, is that it gives you the opportunity to have huge brands on your CV before you’ve even graduated.
