Would you like to work at one of Cambridge’s best May Balls? Working at Pembroke May Ball is a great experience in an amazing atmosphere! It also provides an opportunity to show that you can work in a team and demonstrate skills that employers are looking for.

We believe you should be paid fairly for your hard work. So, this year, we are offering at least the REAL LIVING WAGE of £9.00/hr for all positions.


The May Ball provides the perfect platform for sponsors to reach out to some of the brightest minds at the University. In 2017, the Ball was a huge success with five star reviews from the two most read student newspapers in Cambridge. We're really looking forward to continue building on this excellent reputation and have a huge range of sponsorship opportunities to offer as we do so. We'd love to start a chat and discuss ideas - please do contact the presidents and take a look at the sponsorship guide.
