A bit about us:

The Ambassador Platform is peer-to-peer marketing and student recruitment platform for Higher Ed providers. It allows 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 mean that they can show what life at their institution is really like, helping prospective students make the best choice for their future.

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. We want everyone in the team to feel empowered to take responsibility and accountability for their own performance and the completion of work, while giving them flexibility for the management of their own time.

We also offer 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 has recently been acquired by IDP Education. We still operate fully independently, but with the support of a globally renowned company behind us. We are headquartered in the UK and have offices in London, a remote team in Ukraine, Canada and Brisbane.
