FIXR steps up to offer 40% fee rise to students as part of Brand Ambassador programme
Students are being offered a boost to tackle the cost-of-living crisis thanks to event technology platform FIXR. The digital ticketing platform has welcomed back an enhanced version of its popular Brand Ambassador programme, which offers students the chance gain valuable CV experience in the events space while earning cash to help contribute toward rising costs.
Launching on Thursday 1 September in time for freshers’ week, students can apply to be part of a growing network of ambassadors responsible for engaging event organisers and societies as well as increasing brand awareness of FIXR within their local university town or city. Real Living Wage is paid when working at any FIXR event, a fee of £35 – a 40% increase on last year – is paid to each student per event organiser signed up to FIXR and a commission of 15% earned on ticket prices generated. Additionally, students can take home £25 for every friend referred to the programme.
Speaking of the Brand Ambassador programme, Ed Glover, CEO of FIXR, commented: “This year the FIXR Brand Ambassador programme is back, bigger and better than ever. With the rising cost of living, twinned with expensive student loans, it’s a way to reduce some of the financial pressures of being a student.
“University should be some of the happiest days of our lives. At universities all over the country FIXR Brand Ambassadors will be making the most of their student days, with access to training and by gaining entrepreneurial and business experience, as well as meeting new friends, having fun and earning extra cash along the way.”
Jamie Loughray who is a FIXR Brand Ambassador at Oxford Brookes University, commented: “Initiatives such as the Brand Ambassador programme have always been important but with the cost-of-living crisis it’s more important than ever that students are supported during their studies with the extra help from employers.
“We’re really pleased to see FIXR stepping up by increasing payment fee to students while continuing to offer employment and career experiences that contribute towards a great CV.”
