A HUGE THANK YOU

TO OUR 2023

CFG AMBASSADORS

This past year, our CFG Ambassadors have hosted, posted and toasted (the ‘cheers’ variety) across our socials, client events, Community meet ups and much much more! 

They are an incredible group of Ambassadors and we are so grateful for their passion for CFG and for being inspirational to so many CFG members.

Our Ambassadors have helped shape our decisions by providing in-depth and consistent feedback, and we can’t thank them enough for their hard work and dedication.

A BIG, HUGE, MEGA thank you to our 2023 Ambassadors!

AMBASSADOR ROLE

FAQS

Yes, for the full job description and details of the role, please click here.

There are paid parts of the CFG Ambassador role with the external events and speaking appearances. For these activities, we pay £30 per hour. The initial engagement will be a freelance contract for the role of CFG Ambassador and the number of paid opportunities is estimated at around 2-3 per Ambassador (depending on interest to take part).

We would expect you to commit to the Ambassador programme for 12 months, over this period, and excluding the paid opportunities, we anticipate that this would be a commitment of around ~50 hours for all roundtables, events, L&D training and activities outlined above (with complete flexibility around in-person attendance, prior commitments, work and so forth).

If your initial application is successful we will invite you to complete a video interview (self recorded). Those who are successful are then selected to join an interview with the CFG team. We aim to announce our new Ambassador cohort in November 2023, with the programme ‘officially’ commencing in January 2024.
