A bit about us

The Ambassador Platform is peer-to-peer marketing and student recruitment platform for Higher Ed providers. It enables universities and colleges to connect prospective students with their ambassadors via chats, user-generated content, and video.
The impact is pretty cool, and means that, for the first time ever, Higher Ed providers have a simple solution for making the kind of student connections that allow them to showcase their points of difference in an authentic way and positively influence prospects to choose them over the competition.
Our technology is used by more than 150 institutions in 20 countries around the world and, to date, has supported millions of interactions between students. You can check out our customers here.

Our culture
We work in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment. We operate a 'high trust, high performance, and high transparency' culture. Our key focus is on strong outcomes, where everyone is self-motivated and empowered to take responsibility and accountability for their own performance and the completion of work, but is given reasonable flexibility for the management of their own time. In conjunction with this there is high visibility around progress and outcomes across the company, and everyone is expected and encouraged to highlight areas of improvement. Above all, we value the people we work with, building strong and lasting relationships and are always friendly, kind and approachable.

The Ambassador Platform is headquartered in the UK and has offices in London, Lviv, and Brisbane. Find out what it’s really like to work with us by chatting to our friendly team and see what we get up to on Linkedin.
