Marketing and Communications Officer

We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative, energetic and experienced Marketing and Communications Officer for our lovely school in Reading. This could be a full- or part-time role depending on the candidate, and we are looking to fill it as soon as possible.

St Edward’s Prep is a happy and high-achieving Nursery and Prep School in Reading, Berkshire. We have a high success rate for grammar school entry.

It is a very exciting time for St Edward’s Prep with its recent move to co-ed, and there are huge opportunities for imaginative and transformative marketing to drive the school’s continued growth. There’s lots to get stuck into; the role combines strategic planning with hands-on content creation, so we are looking for someone who enjoys thinking creatively, but also knows their way around a camera, and has strong writing skills. You will work closely with the Head and school Registrar to drive an increase in enquiries and support the Registrar in achieving a high conversion rate.

St Edward’s Prep is a member of the Wishford Schools group. You will be supported by Wishford’s central Marketing Department, and have access to Marketing staff from across our schools, to share ideas and best practice.
