Communications and Marketing Manager

Bedford Modern School (BMS) is an outstanding HMC independent co-educational day school for students aged 7-18. Our community is a friendly, happy and supportive one and all of the 350 staff members, spanning both teaching and non-teaching roles, help to make BMS a very special place to work.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic communications and marketing professional to join our busy External Relations Team. This role is crucial in driving further growth of our already strong market position and developing the distinctive BMS brand and reputation. It is a hands-on role managing design and print, websites and all forms of media in a fast-paced, dynamic environment and would suit someone who enjoys balancing operational and strategic tasks.

We are ideally looking for someone with a flair for writing compelling content, developing creative advertising campaigns and a successful track record in digital marketing. Excellent verbal and written communication skills, experience using Adobe InDesign, Premiere Pro and Microsoft Office are key. You should also feel comfortable using a variety of marketing channels and tactics and be able to analyse the success of campaigns and demonstrate return on investment.

Prior experience of working in a school is not essential but the successful candidate will have empathy for independent education in general, combined with an instinctive feel for the school’s customers and their needs.

In return, we can offer a competitive salary, the option to be part of a private healthcare scheme, a generous pension scheme, CPD opportunities through our membership of the Harpur Trust and free lunches (in term time).

We welcome applications from all parts of our community as we aspire to attract staff that matches the social and cultural diversity of our student intake.

Closing date: 9.00am on Friday 08 December 2023

Interviews: Wednesday 13 December 2023

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We may carry out online searches on shortlisted applicants. This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. The school is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions on a self-declaration form in advance of attending an interview.
