What’s the difference?

Brand Ambassadors

Brand Ambassadors tend to promote one client over the course of one or more academic terms. Sometimes only those who have completed a Spring Week or an Internship with the employer they are representing are eligible for the work. The marketing activities that you will be involved in will depend on the client you are promoting.

Student Marketers

Student Marketers work on behalf of a variety of clients, usually for 1-2 weeks at a time or they assist at a one day event. The work is flexible and project- based, which means that we will call you if we have marketing activities at your campus - if you are able to work those dates, that’s brilliant, and if you have too much university work on, we can just call you next time!

Will I be an employee of Graduate Promotions?

No. Graduate Promotions (GP) may offer you one or more short-term temporary assignments on an ad hoc basis, but is not obliged to do so and there is no guarantee of work now or in the future. Moreover, should you be offered an assignment, there is no requirement that you accept it.

Am I eligible to work as a Brand Ambassador or Student Marketer for Graduate Promotions?

If you are a British citizen, or a national of Switzerland or a member state of the European Economic Area (‘EEA’) (excluding Croatia), you can work for Graduate Promotions if you provide us with a copy of your passport or national identity card. Nationals of countries outside the EEA on a Tier 4 student visas are not eligible to be engaged on this work.

How will I hear about forthcoming campaigns at my university?

We will email, text or telephone you on your mobile in advance of any activities we think might suit you. We sometimes work on short lead-times and therefore the notice can be relatively short.

How many hours will I be expected to work? Will it interfere with my university timetable?

There are no specific or set hours. We will contact you when we have a campaign at your university, and if it does not fit in with your work requirements, you are not obliged to work and we will contact you next time! However, if you do agree to carry out the campaign, we expect you to keep your promise, or at least tell us of any problems which crop up in good time so we can make alternative arrangements.

Once I have agreed to carry out a campaign, how will I be supported?

You will be assigned a GP contact, who will ensure that you are briefed and trained on each campaign that you undertake, and will resolve any problems, concerns or queries that may arise.

Is there any particular type of attire I should wear?

This can vary from project to project and you will be briefed on this before you take on the work. Generally, it is ok to dress casually but please don’t wear ripped jeans, conflicting brands and any jewellery should be discrete. If you are unsure however it is best to give us a call and ask.

How much, how and when do I get paid?

GP Brand Ambassadors and Student Marketers are paid wages at a varying rate depending on location and sometimes project, you will be notified of your rate when we offer it to you. However, the current minimum rates are £8 per hour in the UK, $20 in the US and €10 per hour in EEA countries within the eurozone, or local currency equivalent in other countries. You will be paid once you have completed your assignment and have returned any relevant equipment to us, plus photos and feedback, provided you have already confirmed your acceptance of the brief in writing. Payments will then be processed on a monthly basis. During your assignment you will be employed by us, which means tax and relevant deduction will be applied automatically.

I have a friend who is interested in working as a Student Marketer. What should I tell them to do?

Please direct them to this site and inform them of the application process. Please make sure to tell them to let us know how they heard about us. If we think your friend is great and just what we are looking for, you will get a cash reward after their first successfully completed assignment!
