It’s never too early to take control of your career. Become a Herbert Smith Freehills campus ambassador and start today.

We’re a leading, full-service, global law firm working on some of the world’s biggest cases and deals at the forefront of the world’s most exciting sectors.

By combining perspectives and potential from diverse backgrounds, we offer our clients pioneering solutions. Our progressive approach allows us to continually break new ground; whether it’s a complex international dispute or a billion-pound, cross-border deal. You'll get involved in new situations and experiences and discover new skills to learn and apply.

First year students can apply to take on the campus ambassador role during their second year of study. As a campus ambassador, you’ll need the passion and communication skills to inspire other students, both in person and on social media. In doing this, you’ll help your peers elevate their ambition by educating them about the opportunities available at Herbert Smith Freehills. 

Being a campus ambassador offers you work experience, the chance to hone key transferable skills for any professional career and gain a unique insight into our firm; as well as the chance to start building up your reputation and your legal network. 

What we look for

You don’t need to study law to be a campus ambassador. In fact, we welcome students from a wide range of academic backgrounds. We're looking for people with strong communication skills, enthusiasm and creativity. 

What will I be doing?

The position of campus ambassador provides you with invaluable experience, gives you further insight into the firm, prepares you for the vacation scheme application process, and involves:

  • Planning activities and organising events
  • Growing your professional and personal network
  • Managing the HSF Facebook and Instagram pages for your university
  • Sharing information and amplifying our impact on your campus.

Key dates

  • Apply between: 1 – 31 January 2022 (open to first-year students and second-year students on a four-year course) 
    Start year: 2022/2023

To apply, you’ll need to complete an online application form and blended online assessment. If you’re offered the role and decide to apply for a vacation scheme in your second year, you won’t need to retake the online assessment and we’ll fast track your application to review stage.

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
