Health and care ambassadors

Could you inspire children and young people in your local community? Volunteering as an ambassador is a great way to share unique insight and passion for the work you do.

Career ambassadors are invited into schools and colleges to help students understand more about the range of jobs on offer in our industry and what different job holders do. Ambassadors are positive role models for their profession with personal stories about getting in, succeeding and progressing in their chosen career.

If you are interested in becoming a career ambassador, or, you would like to request an ambassador for your school, visit the links below.
