Become an Ambassador
Call for EST Ambassadors!
Are you interested in the EU and would you like to contribute to narrowing the gap between the EU and its students? Then apply for the position of EST Ambassador in your country!
As one of our Ambassadors, you are a key player 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 papers, organizing your own events and building a network of student contributors! To put it in a nutshell: you are the face of EST in your country. As the EST is a young organisation, there is also plenty of room for your own input, ideas, and challenges.
Being an Ambassador will allow you to acquire first-hand experience working within an international think tank, being involved in the European policy-making process, organizing events on today’s important political issues and entering into a network of like-minded peers.
Ambassadors spend roughly 5 hours a week on participating in and promoting EST and its activities, building a national network of enthusiastic students and professors.
The EST is looking for motivated, proactive candidates who have an excellent command of English and good written, verbal and social skills. In addition, Ambassadors are required to live in the country they represent and to 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 Stefan Pfalzer at firstname.lastname@example.org before September 22nd.
