Guidance for Student Brand Ambassadors

Guidance for Student Brand Ambassadors working for Recruiters

Please note that the information on this page is only relevant for career-related activities and promotion. We cannot provide services or support for brand ambassadors engaged in more general brand promotion.

The Career Zone receives a high number of enquiries from student brand ambassadors working on behalf of recruiters, particularly during the busy autumn term. To help manage this effectively, we have provided guidance which outlines the services we offer and covers some of the most commonly asked questions.

 

General advertising

We can support you with advertising the organisation you represent. The options available are as follows:

We can accept up to 29 A3 and 18 A4 posters and up to 300 flyers (numbers differ for the Penryn Campus depending on audience so please check with the Career Zone). We distribute these on a weekly basis to key buildings on our campuses (i.e. posters on noticeboards, flyers left at reception desks).

Please deliver your marketing material to the Career Zone (Forum, Streatham Campus) and mark for the attention of Natalie Luscombe. Material for the Penryn Campus can be left with Sharron Curtis in the Career Zone. If the material relates to an event, we need to have it no later than three weeks before, to circulate in good time.

Please note: We do not hand out flyers on your behalf. You are not permitted to hand out flyers on campus unless a drop in/showcase event has been booked (please see ‘Other Events’ section).

Tweet us and we will re-tweet your opportunities/event: @UoECareers (for Streatham and St Luke’s campuses) and @UoECornwallCZ (for Penryn campus). There is also a dedicated Career Zone Facebook page and newsletter for the Penryn Campus. Please email es-penryn@exeter.ac.uk for more details.

If your organisation is running an event off campus  - i.e. trip to their offices - or has a competition they wish to promote, we can arrange for this to be added to the news section of My Career Zone. Please send details to Natalie Luscombe: N.L.Luscombe@exeter.ac.uk

We receive a high number of requests to send emails out to our students. To manage this, we offer an online bookable targeted email service. Each week during term, two slots are available to book and are offered on a first come, first served basis. There is a charge of £150+VAT for this service which must be paid at the time of booking.

To book, please visit our website.

Please note:

This is the only route available to send out bespoke emails to students. We are not able to offer this service for free or at a reduced rate. 

You are not permitted to send emails from your account to other students and staff on behalf of an organisation for their commercial gain. Please be aware that you will be in breach of the University's IT regulations (see clause 5.4) if you attempt to do this. 

Vacancy advertising

We offer a free vacancy advertising service. If your employer wishes to promote their positions, please direct them to our website for full details on how to make a submission.

Careers fairs

These are delivered throughout the year and are extremely popular with employers. We offer the following:

 Streatham Campus

Penryn Campus

These events open up to 9 months in advance of the date they take place and book up quickly. With the exception of the International Virtual Careers Fair, they also enter waiting lists. Employers looking to register to attend a fair should visit our website for full details and costs.

Other events 

We can organise bespoke events on behalf of your employer.

Recruitment Events

Employability Events

  • Skills sessions - Workshops which focus on the skills students require during the recruitment process.
  • Mock Interviews - Provide students with the chance to gain interview experience with an employer.

Full details about our services, including associated costs, can be found on our website

If the event has been booked through our team, we will automatically promote via:

  • Social media
  • My Career Zone
  • E-newsletter
  • Distribution of posters and flyers (if supplied in hard copy at least 3 weeks ahead of the event)

Marketing of events not organised by the Career Zone 

We are sorry, but we are unable to offer the above full service for events which have not been booked via our team. However we encourage you to make use of our general advertising service as detailed at the top of this page.

Events should be booked as early as possible. Our autumn term is extremely busy and we therefore open for bookings in February and are usually full by August for the upcoming autumn term. We appreciate student brand ambassadors may not be employed at this point and may be tasked with booking an event when term starts. If we are able to add an additional event to our schedule, then please be aware that we will need a minimum of one month’s notice – preferably 6 weeks - in order to arrange and promote it effectively. Any available slots will be limited and if we are unable to accommodate your preferred date, we may suggest rolling it over into the next term.
