Director of Admissions and Marketing

For April 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter

Wells Cathedral School is seeking an outstanding candidate to develop and manage this key department within the School. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate creativity and skill to develop and deliver all aspects of our admissions, marketing and communication.

The Director of Admissions and Marketing has responsibility for the successful recruitment of pupils throughout the School (2-18) and for the implementation of a strategic marketing plan. The post-holder will work across both the Senior and Prep Schools and focus on the recruitment of pupils who will flourish in, and contribute positively to, the academic, pastoral, musical and co-curricular life of the School.

Given the role’s primary focus, this role will ideally suit an experienced admissions and pupil recruitment professional; any marketing or communications experience they can additionally offer will be valuable, as will any experience of an educational, and ideally an independent education sector, background.

Closing date: Friday 16 February 2024, 12 noon

Interviews are scheduled to take place on Thursday 22 February 2024

Suitable candidates may be interviewed before the closing date and Wells Cathedral School reserves the right to withdraw the position if an early appointment is made. Applicants are therefore encouraged to apply early.
