Prep Admissions Registrar & Marketing Officer

We are looking for a highly organised, enthusiastic and self-motivated individual to take on a dual-role at Oxford High Prep School (OHPS), focusing on Admissions and Marketing.  Working alongside the Head of Prep, the Marketing & Admissions team, as well as other teaching and support staff colleagues, this role is integral to the success of the recruitment of pupils entering Reception to Year 6.

As Admissions Registrar, your primary responsibilities are pupil recruitment, customer service and administration, with accountability for fulfilling all duties of the admissions process efficiently, through a variety of channels.

As Marketing Officer, you will focus on the planning and execution of marketing activities across various channels, such as social media, the website, as well as print communications and collateral.

You will be a vital member of the School’s marketing and admissions team, being the main point of contact for all inbound and outbound correspondences from/to prospective parents seeking entry to OHPS in Reception to Year 6, seeing through the full customer journey from initial enquiry to onboarding new students, and everything in between. You will be responsible for ensuring the smooth running and successful completion of the admissions process, for both UK and overseas applicants, whilst always delivering an exceptional level of service and ensuring a high quality of work that is representative of the reputation of the Prep School.

Additionally, you will support with organising and implementing marketing plans within OHPS, through digital and traditional channels with the aim of supporting pupil recruitment as well as raising the profile of the School within the local community. You will have the opportunity to lead on specific projects and increase your skillset by taking on a wide variety of tasks that are integral to the positive promotion of OHPS.

Your responsibilities will include maintaining the admissions database, handling enquiries from prospective parents and processing applications in a timely fashion, facilitating the administration of the School’s entrance examinations, and much more. All of which are required within very strict timeframes and in combination with managing a very busy and varying workload. You will also oversee admissions events, such as assessment days, open days, virtual meetings and parents’ visits and maintain the Prep School’s social media channels and presence on the school website, plus more.

You will need excellent interpersonal and communication skills, both verbal and written, and be able to maintain a high level of efficiency and attention to detail. You must be able to work independently, taking ownership of your workload, whilst being collaborative and supportive of your colleagues in the department and throughout the school.

To be successful in this role, you will ideally have experience in customer service or sales, as well as marketing and stakeholder management. An external facing role, you will have a positive and proactive approach to work and enjoy managing multiple projects at once.

Admissions and Marketing are busy year-round; therefore, this role is full-time and requires someone who is proactive and forward-thinking, to ensure that during peak periods you are well prepared and responsive to the demands of the job.
