High Fliers Research was established in 1994 as an independent market research company, specialising in student and graduate research. The company, in association with The Times, works with national and international employers, helping them understand the attitudes and aspirations of undergraduates and analysing the impact of their on-campus graduate recruitment programmes.
The company's main annual research programme is The UK Graduate Careers Survey, which is the largest and most authoritative survey of final year students conducted in the UK, reaching over 12,000 finalists across the UK's leading universities. The research is used to produce The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers, the popular hard-backed careers guide and website that is used by students across the UK.
High Fliers Research, working in association with The Times is looking for enthusiastic, committed and innovative individuals to work as Law Survey Ambassadors at 26 leading universities for Law across the UK. The Ambassadors provide vital support to the Research Manager at the High Fliers head office by coordinating a variety of campus based market research and project management tasks to help us better understand your university and its final year students.
University careers services, the national press and legal graduate employers – including Allen & Overy, Slaughter and May, DLA Piper and Latham and Watkins - are all invested in the results of this survey, and the results are presented to firms in early 2024 to inform their graduate recruitment programs. Your role as Law Survey Ambassador will play a crucial part in this.
Applicants must: be in their penultimate or final year of undergraduate study and be studying law (or able to demonstrate a strong interest in a law conversion course following the completion of their undergraduate degree). They must be studying at one of the universities listed below:
The ideal candidate will be sociable and have a good knowledge of their campus, with connections to law societies and clubs. They must be able to plan and organise efficiently; and have the ability to work independently using their initiative to deliver the task at hand on time and to a high standard. Excellent communication and leadership skills are imperative, as the main task requires Ambassadors to recruit, manage and motivate their own team of fellow students.
The Law Student Survey is an innovative annual study of students at the UK’s top universities who are interested in working as solicitors. The Ambassador's task is to target final year law students, penultimate year law students and non-law students interested in a career in law, who are looking for a graduate job. They will encourage them to sign up to the Law Student Survey 2023.
The Ambassador will be expected to actively attend Law Careers Fairs, Law Society events and employer popups during the autumn semester. They must complete a brief, 10-minute campus research questionnaire giving feedback on their impressions of firms at their university.
The Law Student Survey is released. The Law Survey Ambassador is responsible for encouraging their team to complete the survey, and reach their target number of survey completions.
We offer a highly competitive rate of pay, along with the opportunity to earn bonuses throughout the year.
The role allows you to develop your management, organisational and communication skills that are crucial when applying for graduate jobs. You will also gain invaluable insight into the world of law graduate recruitment through managing these different tasks.
On completion of the role, you will join a vast network of previous Law Survey Ambassadors who we have worked with over the past 20 years.
If you are interested in the role of Law Survey Ambassador, please apply using the online form. We will then send you an application form, and if shortlisted, we will invite you for an online interview.
