Director of Marketing and Admissions

Rishworth School is a co-educational UK day and boarding School for students aged 3 to 18. Celebrating our Tri-Centenary in 2024, Rishworth School has occupied magnificent buildings in 140 acres of Yorkshire countryside located in the heart of the Ryburn Valley for the past 300 years. Rishworth School joins traditional values with innovative Teaching and Learning encapsulating our Res Non Verba motto.

Rishworth School is seeking to appoint a Director of Marketing and Admissions to lead an established Marketing and Admissions team during the next phase of their development.

This is an exciting opportunity as we look forward to our 300th anniversary in 2024; this position will play a significant role in the school’s ongoing success.

Rishworth is a family-oriented, co-educational, independent Day and Boarding school. Rated “Excellent” in the Independent Schools Inspectorate, we cater for children aged 3 to 18 years, combining strong academic results with a supportive pastoral ethos. We are an all-round school, that believes in nurturing students to achieve their very best in whatever they set out to do.

Whilst we are a small school, with small class sizes, Rishworth is also ambitious to grow the Boarding community further. The DoMA will be an integral part of the Senior Leadership Team, offering the successful candidate the autonomy to support, review and refine the School’s Development Plan and strategic aims. We are seeking a quietly confident, self-motivated, customer-focused, target-driven individual with exceptional people skills, who loves nothing more than seeing their team thrive on their successes and who supports and encourages them to excel in all they do.

Previous independent school experience is not essential, although an understanding of the sector would be desirable.
