The benefits of being a Gale Ambassador

Gale Ambassadors are paid £700/€800/16,800​​​​R* to complete set tasks within a year. If you remain studying at your university, there may be the opportunity to renew your contract in the future.

Plus, the role is also great for your CV…

  • Business experience – work directly with a global publisher.
  • Have your work published on our company blog – great, shareable evidence of your work.
  • Run your own marketing activities – refine 'marketing copy' and images to make successful use of social media.
  • Public speaking – run presentations and training sessions with your fellow students, obtaining valuable public speaking skills.
  • Network – connect with more staff and students at your university, students in other countries, and numerous colleagues at Gale.
  • Market Research - understand product development processes.
  • Discover more primary sources for your own essays – potentially improving your grades!




The program is very flexible – most activities can be completed at a time convenient to each student, so can be fitted around your existing schedule, university work and other responsibilities.
