Job description

This is your chance to come and work for an innovative national newspaper and create excitement and awareness about our brand across your campus, amongst your fellow students.

This is a paid role.

- Be able to work during term-time

- Have access to a computer with high-speed internet access

- Be social media savvy

- Have a smartphone, preferably with a camera

- Be eligible to work in the UK

Please email your CV, along with a link to a short video, no longer than three minutes, telling us why you want to be a SBA for i, to brandambassador@independent.co.uk. Please include your name and your university in the subject heading. The deadline for applications is 5 October 2012.
