In the words of previous Student Brand Ambassadors…

“The perfect challenge to take on as a hobby outside of University studies. It allows you to get your creative juices flowing whether it is organising a ginspired party or just spreading the Sipsmith story. You need to be prepared to work hard, take responsibility and to be willing to challenge yourself.”

Sam (Student Brand Ambassador, Imperial College)

“Being a brand ambassador is the dream job in so many ways. It’s flexible so it fits perfectly around your studies, and the responsibility and team work will definitely help you in any future career. Plus did I mention you’re working for a gin company?!

Gee (Student Brand Ambassador, LSE)

“Working for Sipsmith has been truly amazing! I cannot thank Sipsmith enough for the skills they have given me through this job. A great bunch of Gals and Guys who I have enjoyed so much working with.”

James (Student Brand Ambassador, UCL)

“Working with Sipsmith has been an amazing opportunity. Being able to work at some of the most amazing events, help be the face of Sipsmith and work with such lovely people makes the hard work completely worth it.”

Ruth (Student Brand Ambassador, Barts University Hospital)

“Great people and a great company to get involved with – you can guarantee there will never be a dull moment with the Sipsmith lot!”

Megan (Student Brand Ambassador, City of London)
