Fancy joining the Team London Ambassadors this summer?

This summer why not join the Team London Ambassadors and welcome visitors to London's cultural hotspots. Applications are open until 22nd April

This summer Team London Ambassadors will once again be based at nine of the busiest tourist locations across London, welcoming visitors and helping to maintain London’s reputation as one of the best cities in the world. Exhibition Road will be one of the locations which the Ambassadors will return to.

The Team London Ambassadors programme has grown from strength to strength since its inception during the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Ambassadors are London’s ‘friendly face’, on hand to answer questions from tourists and Londoners alike and helping to show the world the very best that London has to offer.

Why become an Ambassador?

If you love London and want to help others this is the perfect role for you. Volunteering as an Ambassador means you will be immersed in London’s culture at some of the capital’s top visitor hot spots. It will help you gain and test your knowledge of London, and is a great opportunity to practice your customer service and communications skills whilst building a great network of friends.

Ambassadors volunteer at one of nine information hubs based at the busiest tourist locations – answering queries and signposting visitors to transport routes and local attractions.

What is the commitment?

  • Attend a one-hour interview as part of the selection process
  • Attend one full day foundation training and one-half day location training (Foundation training 18th,19th, 20th May 2018 – Location training 22nd, 25th, 29th June 2018)
  • Volunteer for at least five shifts lasting four and a quarter hours throughout the summer period 18th July – 2nd September 2018

What is the deadline for applications?

Closing date: 22nd April
