Call for Ambassadors
As EST Ambassador you are one of the key players in our network. You are the main contact for your country and an important part of our growing success. You will be responsible for promoting the EST in your country, writing articles for us, organizing your own events in your country and connecting students to the European Student Think Tank! In short, you are the face of EST in your own country. As we are still a young organization, there is also plenty of room for your own input, ideas and challenges.
We are currently especially focused in receiving applications from Ambassadors that will represent us in the EU Member States, but if you live in a European country that is currently applying for EU Membership, belongs to the European Economic Area (EEA) or has other ties to the European Union that you deem important, feel free to apply for the position of ambassador as well.
We are looking for motivated, proactive candidates who have an excellent command of English and good written, verbal and social skills. Ambassadors need have good time management and communication skills and be able to work independently in their countries. In addition, ambassadors are required to live in the country they represent and be familiar with the country’s higher education system.
If you are interested and would like to apply, please send an email with a motivation letter and a CV to our International Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are currently especially focused in receiving applications from Ambassadors that will represent us in:
Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France (Paris, Strasbourg and Southern France), Germany (Frankfurt and Southern Germany), Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain (Andalucia and Catalonia), Sweden and the United Kingdom (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales).
‘Becoming EST Ambassador was a great decision and has allowed me to enjoy one of the most pleasant and enriching experiences of my extracurricular life.’ – Raluca Idor, EST Ambassador to Romania, about her experience with the EST.
