Health and wellbeing ambassadors are colleagues from within #TeamGateshead that provide a link between the organisation’s health and wellbeing work and our teams throughout the organisation.

Ambassadors are essentially volunteers who kindly agree to work to the benefit of their wider team, whether by sharing information, offering feedback or even going over and above to host events, competitions or otherwise. The role of ambassadors is split across three main responsibilities – broadcasting, listening and sharing, with more information around each of the three responsibilities available below.

There are minimum expectations for ambassadors which focus primarily on communication – and you should not apply to become an ambassador if you won’t have the time to help spread the word about developments in our offers whether through a slot in a team meeting, updating a noticeboard, forwarding emails or otherwise.
