Being a campus brand manager has definitely helped my future employability

Abbie, Frontline campus brand manager

I applied to be a campus brand manager because I really wanted to get a deeper insight into Frontline’s work, to learn more about social work and the Frontline programme. The role is also flexible, so I could fit it in alongside my university studies.

Throughout my role I have become much more confident. I feel less nervous talking to new people face-to-face and messaging them through social media on the behalf of Frontline. I recently returned to university after a placement year. I was very nervous to return to campus and face-to-face interactions because I had a year of relative isolation due to COVID. Talking with different members of societies as a campus brand manager has made me feel like I am a part of the university community. And talking with them about Frontline has made me feel like I am a part of something bigger.

I have gained transferable skills and learned how to build relationships with a wide range of people.

My role as a campus brand manager has definitely helped me with my future employability. I have gained transferable skills and learned how to build relationships with a wide range of people. The largely independent work has developed my leadership, as I have taken the initiative and responsibility for meeting my goals. I have got better at prioritising my time and thinking creatively about solutions to common problems. I feel more confident in my own abilities, in general. Thanks to those skills and confidence, I successfully applied to train as a social worker on the Frontline programme!
