The skills that you exhibit as a good student brand ambassador are very much in demand by organisations and graduate employers. 

In a role such as a brand ambassador, you show that you understand how branding and marketing works. You show that you possess the qualities that make you a great communicator who knows how to engage with other people in a way that will persuade them to feel positively about something.

You also show that you are well connected amongst your peers because you are so good at networking.

These qualities and skills, plus many more, are just the sort of characteristics that employers are in constant need of.

In addition, contacts you make during your time could become very useful in your future endeavours. There is every chance that those contacts will remember you and help you get a job with the company when you finish your course or degree.

We aim to increase representation of Black people in mainstream beauty and hope to see Black Beauty and Fashion Award winning products in mainstream stores across the country.
