Cheltenham Ladies’ College (CLC) is an outstanding school with a global reputation, which has been at the forefront of girls’ education for 170 years. Established in 1854, CLC is one of the largest school communities of boarding and day girls in Europe. Today, this pioneering heritage is honoured whilst leaning imaginatively into the needs of a complex and changing world. The College occupies a 36-acre dispersed campus right in the heart of the attractive Cotswold town of Cheltenham, where a warm and inclusive pupil community of around 870 girls is supported by a large and dedicated staff body.

GCSE, A Level and IB results are consistently excellent, with College frequently named as the top IB school in the country. Over the last five years, CLC has won numerous awards for academic excellence and has been named The Sunday Times South-West Independent Secondary School of the Decade.

This is an exceptional opportunity for an outstanding and experienced MarComs professional, to provide strategic direction and inspired leadership for College’s communication and marketing activities. Reporting directly to the Principal, this is a pivotal leadership role which, as a member of a Leadership Team of the highest calibre, will also be instrumental in shaping the strategic direction of College as a whole.

Responsible for the development and implementation of a College-wide strategy for both communications and marketing, the ideal candidate will have a demonstrable track record in strategic communications, marketing and brand management gained from within or outside the education sector. This combined with an inherent feel for the educational landscape and the factors which drive parents to invest in an independent education for their daughters.
