SEO OUTREACH

SEO London outreach efforts are guided by our data-driven strategy. With a focus on building relationships with student societies, universities organisations, and other charities across the UK, we aim to reach as many diverse students as possible and make sure they’re aware of the world-class support and opportunities available at SEO London. 

Two main networks currently comprise SEO London’s outreach strategy: The Student Societies Network, and The Campus Ambassadors Network. With a burgeoning team of French ambassadors, our outreach network now covers over 900 miles from St Andrews to Antibes

AMBASSADOR NETWORK 

Launched in the Autumn of 2021, SEO London’s Campus Ambassador programme is an opportunity for the charity to have presence on campus while engaging our candidates in various outreach activities. All our ambassadors are enthusiastic volunteering SEO London candidates who fully prescribe to our notions of the virtuous cycle and the importance of giving back.  

We work closely with our ambassadors to improve their professional skills and achieve their personal development goals. With three different Ambassador types, our ambassadors have flexibility and freedom in the work they do. 

.

Campus Ambassador – The first point of contact for many potential SEO Candidates. Promoting SEO London and our opportunities, attending events and distributing promotional material

.

Networking Ambassador – Connecting SEO London with student societies and university staff. Helping the outreach team find out relevant events that are occurring on campus 

.

Online Ambassador – Supporting SEO London by creating an engaging presence on social media, sharing our content and opportunities with students that need it the most.  

If you are an SEO Candidate and are interested in becoming an ambassador, please email the Ambassador Coordinator Fred at fred.julien@seo-london.org   

Student Society Network 

This academic year we are focusing on strengthening our relationships with student societies across the UK, expanding our reach and impact to ensure as many diverse students as possible are receiving our support and bettering their chances at a fruitful career in the industries we work with. 

Partnering with student societies allows SEO London to deliver targeted and tailored events to student groups on a whole range of topics from: industry specific workshops, CV clinics, diversity & inclusion talks, and more. 

In addition to providing connections to world-leading firms, our network creates the opportunity for societies across the UK to partner up and collaborate with one another, expanding their own network and member base.
