 What are we looking for in an Ambassador?

  • You must be an enrolled RSM Master or Premaster student on 1 September 2020.
  • You are available for the entire academic year 2020-2021.
  • You are enthusiastic and have good social skills.
  • You are willing to communicate with prospective students via WhatsApp and our digital peer-to-peer platform, Unibuddy. This means you may have to spend approximately 15 min a day on Unibuddy, even during a busy period. Please note that your picture will be displayed on the Unibuddy page.
  • You are not shy in approaching prospective students to offer them information at the open days.
  • You are responsible and reliable when you carry out your tasks.
  • You have no problem speaking to large groups of people and holding presentations.
  • You are willing to respond to short-notice requests about campus tours and school visits.
  • You respond quickly to e-mails and are well-organised.
  • You are willing to prioritise Ambassador work over other extracurricular activities/side-jobs that you undertake.
  • Since we need to arrange a contract for you, you must be in the possession of a Burgerservicenummer (BSN) for the entire year 2020-2021 (which means registering your address with the municipality) and you must acquire a Dutch basic health insurance which is required by Dutch law if you have a working contract. You have to make the arrangements for the insurance yourself.

Note: If you are joining the MSc International Management-CEMS programme, you can still apply for this position. For example if your exchange is in the fall, you can apply for the ambassador position for the spring semester.

Interested? Here’s how to apply:

To apply, you need to complete an online interview, answering three motivational questions in video format and some written questions. 

Keep in mind that once you start the online application process, you will have only 48 hours to complete it.
