Call for EST Ambassadors!

Always dreamt of becoming an Ambassador? This is your chance!
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’s Ambas­sador in your country now!

Equal Opportunities:

The EST Board has an equal policy representation for members of our organization, with 50% women and 50% men in our Board and International Office. The EST Board of 2016 has committed to the progressive implementation of equality quotas in our organization beginning today (5 September 2016) and committing to achieving a 50/50 representation by the first day of 2017.

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 for us, organizing your own events and build­ing a net­work of stu­dent con­trib­ut­ors! In short, you are the face of EST in your own coun­try. As we are still a young organ­isa­tion, 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 following EU Member States* (but we also accept submissions from all other EU member states):

* Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain (Southern Spain, Catalonia), and the United Kingdom (Wales).

Do you want to become an ambassador to 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? Do not hesitate to contact us so we can discuss a possible ambassadorship with this country as well!

We are 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 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 resume to our International Officer Johannes Tropper at international.officer.est@gmail.com!
