International student ambassador


Ref LiU-2022-02605

Skilled and committed employees are a crucial factor in the success of Linköping University. And we need more of them. Our core expertise comes from teachers and researchers, but a successful university requires experienced and motivated employees in many fields. Everyone is important. We need to recruit many new employees thanks to, among all, an expansion in our research activity. We need you here. We look forward to receiving your application!

At Linköping University we embrace innovative thinking. Constantly challenging ourselves has been our strongest motivator ever since we opened our doors in 1975. We are driven by seeking answers beyond the traditional and across subject boundaries. If you are too, we would like to see you at our university. Together we can find solutions to the challenges of the day.

The Communications and Marketing Division at Linköping University is responsible for marketing our international degree programmes towards potential students. We use several channels such as web, social media, events, phone calls, printed material and personal meetings.

We are looking for up to 15 international degree students from all over the world to assist us with content creation on an hourly basis.

Task you may choose from will include:

  • Participate in a LiU blog about international student experiences here at Linköping University; monthly, both text and images
  • Manage our Instagram account
  • Record YouTube-videos about life as a student in Sweden/Linköping University

The following ad-hoc activities are also expected as and when available:

  • Assist with marketing activities such as events, webinars, podcasts, telephone campaigns, contacting potential students from your country of origin or others who are specifically interested in your programme
  • Alumni recruitment activities
  • Evaluation of different marketing activities, for example being part of focus group(s) to evaluate marketing material and communication from LiU
  • Tasks for the International Office, such as careers service, welcome activities, etc.

Other tasks may also be available. The assignments might include “out of office hours”.

We are looking for current students who love to create engaging content. This means you should have content creating skills, such as writing, photography, graphics and filmmaking and preferably experience of communication in social media (image, film and writing). To a lesser extent some experience from project management is desirable. If you’re a keen film maker, we would especially welcome your application. As a general rule, you need good social skills and an ability to shoulder responsibility on your own.
