Brand Ambassador

Brand Ambassadors are the face of a brand on campus. You’re in charge of spreading the word about how great GSK is and what they have to offer for students.

“I really enjoyed this role, not only from the contacts I met but also how I developed my skills. The brand ambassador role encourages you to work proactively in organising events and getting sign-ups. I have made many contacts including the ex Vice President of GSK, who offered to be my mentor for the future. Both my presentation and communication skills have immensely improved due to the events I ran. This is also going to be amazing for my CV.”
