Head of Marketing and Communications

We are looking to appoint a Head of Marketing who will lead our Marketing team through the next phase of the School’s development.

The Head of Marketing is responsible for overseeing and delivering all aspects of the School’s marketing and communications activity including Open Days and media plans. Reporting to the Director of Admissions & Marketing and working closely with them, the Headmaster, Senior Academic Staff and the marketing team, you will ensure our communications consistently reflect our branding, vision and values, and ensure that it brings to life the story of Kingswood. It is an excellent opportunity for an experienced marketing leader to join a growing and dynamic school, helping to deliver our goals.

Applicants must have a clear appreciation of the Kingswood ethos. There is a uniqueness to the School and the post holder must be able to communicate the essence of what it means to be part of this special community to a wide audience.
This post will most likely be suited to an experienced professional from the independent education sector, who combines demonstrable media planning and event management skills with experience leading a team. Alternatively the role might suit an exceptional individual with commercial experience gained outside the sector with an instinctive feel for the School’s customers and their needs, bringing with them the qualities and skills to undertake this complex and exciting job.
