Additional opportunities for students and graduates

We are currently offering two additional opportunities for students and graduates: Recruitment Ambassador roles, which are part-time jobs for students on campus, and an internship in our Head Office. You can find more information below.

Recruitment Ambassadors

Are you a university student with a passion for mental health, and looking to build your marketing and networking skills in a paid and flexible role?

We are looking for enthusiastic and proactive students to help us spread our message about the exciting work of Think Ahead, and mental health social work more widely, across their universities. In this role, you’ll develop new and existing networks on campus (with academic departments, societies, and voluntary organisations), and support us at careers fairs and other recruitment events to raise our profile.

You’ll gain a range of skills, including independent working, marketing, networking, and planning. You’ll be working for an ambitious organisation that leads the way in improving outcomes for people with mental health problems through social work. If you are interested in a career in mental health, charities, marketing, communications, events, PR, or related roles, then this role is for you.


  • Salary: Living Wage of £8.75 per hour (£10.20 with London weighting), amounting to around £350 for the autumn term (£410 in London).
  • Working hours: Four hours per week, September – December 2018, with possible extension to February (flexible working hours).
  • Deadline: Rolling applications with the next deadline at 5pm on Friday 6 July 2018.
