Be Optiver’s
Campus Ambassador

Your expertise

You know what it
takes to be an intern
at Optiver and
that’s why you are our best ambassador

Tap into your network, help us spot our future colleagues and get rewarded.

It goes without saying that at Optiver, our people are our greatest strength. Our internship and graduate programs are constantly growing – and we’re looking for bright sparks like you. Our Campus Ambassador Program is one of the ways for you to get involved.

Being a Campus Ambassador is an exciting opportunity to develop your leadership and networking experience whilst gaining professional skills that you will be able to leverage in the workplace. And while this is a voluntary role, we will reward you with Campus Ambassador Perks for those who go the extra mile.

We’ll arm you with everything you need to increase awareness of the Optiver Internship program at your university at a time that suits your schedule.

What’s in it for you?

Valuable experience

As a Campus Ambassador, you’ll gain skills and experiences to enhance your leadership, team work, planning and organisational skills. Your passion and self-motivation will set you up for success.

Knowledge sharing

Campus Ambassadors have the freedom to coordinate their promotional strategy. You’ll be provided with the Optiver communications plan with timings on when we would like your support to invite students to Optiver hosted events and promote both online and in-person. We’ll also provide you with promotional material but ultimately it’s up to you to decide how you use it.

Become an Optiverian

As a Campus Ambassador, you’ll become part of the Optiver team. You’ll receive an Optiver t-shirt and Campus Ambassador pack in the post. We’ll schedule an initial phone call to get to know you and after that we’re always available via phone and email to support you throughout the Ambassador program and into the future.

  • Enthusiasm and active participation
