Current Opportunities

Techwuman is always on the lookout for new STEM Ambassadors at different stages of their career or education be it undergraduates, postgraduates or fully qualified professionals.

The Techwuman STEM Ambassador programme is designed to train those from the STEM industry to ‘give back’ by being role models allowing them to share their career pathways and knowledge.

Techwuman delivers activity days to primary schools across the UK to promote STEM at grass-root level. These are bespoke activity days, which allow pupils the opportunity to meet our STEM Ambassadors who have a variety of different roles in STEM industries, are from different backgrounds and most importantly are of both genders.

These activity days provide opportunities for pupils to understand STEM concepts whilst having fun! The best way to promote STEM is by using real life STEM role models from the industry; the pupils can speak to our STEM Ambassadors and hear about different job roles, and realise that they don’t have to look or behave a certain way.

What our Ambassadors say:

"Being a STEM Ambassador with Techwuman is enriching and empowering. With Techwuman you’re joining the warm team to present the importance of STEM subjects and job roles to children who’s mind are sponges and smiles are mirrors; they absorb our knowledge and emit positivity throughout the day. The sessions are not only beneficial to the students but allow us ambassadors to connect with other like-minded individuals and broaden our network to a wide range of different sectors. Techwuman is like a family of brilliance and I am privileged to be able to say I promote their core values."

-- Byader Hamed, Innovation Engineer

"Working as a STEM ambassador for Techwuman has been an experience and has given me leadership skills not usually gained in an adult based environment. It is great to inspire the next generation to take interests in STEM, hopefully leading to careers or showing them the possibilities of jobs that they wouldn’t have thought about. It is also great to work with other ambassadors from all walks of life and a great way to network with others in STEM industries which as a graduate has proven invaluable."

-- Neel Ghoorun, Mechanical Engineer

"Being a STEM ambassador with Techwuman has been a rewarding and enjoyable experience. I have been able to share my enthusiasm for STEM, and why I am pursuing studies in it, while motivating young people to follow STEM career paths. By engaging with school students about the endless possibilities in STEM, I have been able to see how inspired and excited they are, partaking in STEM activity days. It is wonderful to see the progress in their interest and self-confidence over the space of an activity day. As a STEM ambassador I have also had the opportunity to use and improve upon my communication skills as well as learn from a network of successful, ambitious individuals in STEM. I really look forward to assisting in future STEM promotion events."

-- Varsha Vijay, Biomedical Engineer

"I have enjoyed my time as a Techwuman STEM ambassador, as it has been a valuable experience. I have enjoyed working with children and teaching them about STEM careers. It has also connected me with a lot of professionals in my chosen field, which will help me further my career."

-- Daniel Hutchinson, Microbiologist

"My role as STEM Ambassador has given me the opportunity to grow and develop in so many different ways. The opportunity to inspire the next generation of STEM leaders is a privilege. I love working with the kids, it’s great to see how happy they are when learning and completing the activities. I am continually inspired by their growth in every session. Personally, I have grown more confident in speaking about the STEM industry and have had a change of perspective when engaging with the future generation. Above all, it is super fun and has been a great way to meet other like-minded individuals from all over the country."

-- Gloria Adebayo, Mechanical Engineer

"Becoming a stem ambassador was a new experience to me which in itself was rewarding being an influential key worker for young lives. This experience allowed me to tap into a complete different skill set, driving me to build strong relationships with the children encouraging me to pass on my wealth of knowledge within engineering. Engineering has been close to home as a family trade, where I grew up wanting to know how things worked and were created. Learning key skills from my father at a young age were extremely useful which led me to pass this over to the generation of today."

-- Mohssan Mahmood, Materials Engineer

"Promoting STEM within schools is so important, it creates the opportunity to influence the lives of children by educating them on STEM and breaking the stereotypes surrounding the industries involved. It is very rewarding working with the children and teaching them that STEM is a very exciting field within which to work, and encouraging them to pursue STEM subjects. The children really enjoy all the activities, and it is a great opportunity for the ambassadors to support STEM industries and leave children inspired from a young age."

-- Hannah Rosenbaum, Aerospace Engineer

"Be the flame of fate, that torch of truth to guide our young people toward a better future for themselves and for this country."

-- Michelle Obama
