Be an AET University Representative

We are looking for a passionate, committed and proactive individual to represent Africa Educational Trust on your campus.

Interested in working within the international development or charity sector?
Want to gain event planning, fundraising, marketing and management skills?
Looking for a way to do something positive and share your passion for global justice?

Join the Africa Educational Trust team by becoming an ambassador for our work within your University community!

What does it involve?

As the AET Campus Rep, you will promote and represent Africa Educational Trust on your campus and encourage others to get involved and support our work. Exactly what that might look like, we will work with you to develop based on your own preferences, creativity and what you believe works for your University.
The sort of activities we expect you will likely be involved in include:

  • Provide you with the opportunity to design and run your own fundraising events on campus;
  • To represent AET during major University events such as Fresher’s Fair or careers fairs;
  • Use social media to connect with students;
  • To drive and promote our campaigns on campus;
  • Recruit and manage a team of volunteers;
  • Attend high profile events as an AET representative;
  • and organise meeting and events to promote AET.

All our university represenatives will be trained and supported from our main office in London and you will work closely with other student organisations to inspire and educate your peers.

Benefits of Being a Campus Rep

You will be able to develop new CV enhancing skills such as event management, fundraising, marketing, volunteer management, leadership and networking that employers will be looking for once you graduate.

You will gain invaluable experience with a well-established charity with over 50 years of experience in development and education.

You will be joining a community of AET ambassadors across the country and have opportunities to network and share your experiences with.

You will get out and meet new people and network with societies across your campus.

And you can do all this in a role that it has been designed to fit around your uni schedule and commitments.
