New opportunities for students and graduates announced! Gain experience with Think Ahead

We can today reveal two exciting new opportunities for students and graduates to work with Think Ahead during 2016. Applications for these roles will open in the spring

In the coming weeks we’ll be recruiting undergraduates to work during term-time as Recruitment Ambassadors – a unique opportunity for you to promote Think Ahead, and mental health more widely, at your university. We’ll also be offering students and graduates the chance to join our Summer Internship programme at Think Ahead’s head office in July and August.

Both jobs are a chance to join the Think Ahead movement and make a real difference to people with mental health problems. They’re also a fantastic opportunity to gain experience, enhance your CV, and stand out from the graduate crowd, including if you want to apply later this year to join the Think Ahead programme in 2017. All roles will pay the Living Wage.

As a Recruitment Ambassador you will help build Think Ahead’s reputation among fellow students at your university. You’ll organise and run events, reach out to student groups who may not have heard about Think Ahead, and design new approaches to ensure we attract a strong and diverse mix of applicants. We’ll also ask for your feedback on your experiences to help shape Think Ahead’s future opportunities for students. You’ll be asked to work around four hours per week, leaving plenty of time to concentrate on study.

As a Summer Intern you will join our head office team for three weeks during the summer. It’s a small team running a complex and high-profile operation, so this is a chance to take on a varied and challenging role in a dynamic environment. You might work with our recruitment experts to build relationships with universities, with our programme specialists who manage the programme itself, or with our communications team to promote Think Ahead in the media and online. Or a mix of everything! (You can let us know what you’re interested in when you apply.)
