Event notifications

We work closely with appointed Leads from our partner Trusts who support Careers Ambassadors. Once you’ve signed up, we’ll keep your Lead updated on events and other local opportunities for you to participate in.

Attending events together

The Hub team are more than happy to accompany new Ambassadors to events where possible, to support and build confidence. We can also bring along some useful information and publications, which will complement the more role-specific activities you take part in.

Representing your Trust

Representing your Trust

Uphold Trust values in everything you do

If you volunteer to become an Ambassador, you will be representing your organisation when undertaking duties and attending events. Act as you do in your day-to-day role, upholding the values and behavioural policies of the organisation. In the unlikely event that there is an incident which occurs while you are taking on the role of Ambassador, it will be dealt with by the organisation through your line manager.

Voluntary activity

Voluntary activity

A role separate to your day job

The Ambassador role is primarily a voluntary one and not seen as part of your substantive role within the organisation. If you would like to take part in an event or activity, please discuss this with your line manager before committing to take part. In some instances you will be able to volunteer during working hours; this is left to the discretion of your line manager. If not, ask for your manager to arrange for you to be off-duty when an event is due to take place.
