Every year, the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages runs a variety of outreach events and activities, from open days, school visits and study days, to providing online resources for teachers and pupils of modern languages in schools across the country.

The Faculty is looking to recruit a group of Student Ambassadors from across its undergraduate and graduate courses and from a variety of backgrounds to support with these outreach activities. Ambassadors will be paid £12.49 an hour and should expect to work approximately 20 hours across the academic year.

Responsibilities will vary depending on the activity but will often include supporting the general running of events, providing information, guidance and personal experiences of applying to and studying languages at Oxford to students and teachers, and supporting students during academic sessions. There will also be opportunities to contribute to the Faculty’s digital outreach offering, such as through blog posts and videos.

Student Ambassadors can have a real impact on prospective students’ engagement with languages and interest in applying to Oxford. For this reason, we are looking for applicants who are passionate about widening access, have some experience of working with young people, and can communicate effectively with a range of audiences.

To apply for this role, please complete this short online application form with some basic personal details as well as your motivations and any relevant experiences. Applications will close on Thursday 3rd November 2022 at midday.

If you are successful, training will be provided to support Ambassadors with safeguarding and adhering to relevant university policies.
