As a Student Guide you will take on a variety of roles and responsibilities including:

  • Supporting large events such as Open Days, Applicant Visit Days, Subject Taster Days and Summer Residentials. Working with young people and their families to help them make informed decisions about university.
  • Working with school and sixth form students for visits to campus. You would be required to run workshops with other Student Guides, as well showing students around the university. You may also be asked to create your own ‘Student Experience Talk’ to share your personal experience of university.
  • Talking passionately about your experience as an Edge Hill student in a virtual environment though Q&A Panels, Student Life talks and sharing your experience during Subject Specific Sessions.
  • Opportunities to assist with clerical duties to support the recruitment team, including data entry, prospectus packing and sending out marketing literature

Training and support

You will receive excellent training and support to help you to develop your skills and confidence. There will also be an opportunity later in the year to progress on to a Student Ambassador role through further interview and training. This is an exciting opportunity which includes travelling to school and UCAS fairs nationwide to represent the University at a higher rate of pay.

Working hours

We endeavour to provide you with event dates in advance, however this is not always possible, therefore the number of hours you work per week will fluctuate. The work hours are flexible and determined by yourself by signing up to work using our portal. We employ students who live both on and off-campus.

Equal opportunities

To support our Access and Participation Plan, and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, we will offer a guaranteed interview to students who identify as:

  • a mature student
  • a student with a disability
  • a student with experience of care,
  • a student who is estranged from their family
  • students who are the first in their family to study at university
  • Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students.

Successful applicants who become Student Guides and who identity as being a mature student, a student with a disability, a student with experience of care, a student who is estranged from their family, students who are the first in their family to study at university, and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students will have the opportunity to be an Access and Participation Plan (APP) Student Advisory Panel member. Membership will require attending a number of panel meetings per academic year, to help steer the universities approaches to supporting students from backgrounds that are considered underrepresented in higher education.

If you would like to apply for the role then please fill in the application form.
