This exciting opportunity has arisen to join our team as the school’s Marketing Manager. Our school continues to go from strength to strength, with many school years being oversubscribed due to demand for places. There are tremendous benefits to working in the independent schools’ school sector and St. Michael’s is one of Wales’ leading schools. In 2017, our pupils and staff secured the highest GCSE results in Wales, in 2018 we were placed 30th in the country by The Times for A-Level and 27th in 2019, along with the award of Welsh Independent Secondary School of the Year. This year, we have just been named as Welsh Independent Secondary School of the Decade by The Sunday Times. These achievements are down to our hard working staff who go above and beyond in everything that they do and our highly motivated pupils, whose conduct and enthusiasm supports them to achieve great things. Pupil behaviour is exemplary and a strong pastoral system ensures that rewards and sanctions create a supportive and optimistic climate which allows learning to take priority.
The role of Marketing Manager is a critically important one to the school’s continued success. It will be your responsibility to know the school, its curriculum and course choices exceptionally well, taking the lead with promoting the varied opportunities available to prospective pupils and their parents. You will work closely with the school’s Registrar who handles the administration of enquiries, visits and offers. You will build strong working relationships with all members of staff, generating content for the school’s website and social media channels, visiting classrooms and attending school events. Working with the Headmaster, you will plan and deliver campaigns to raise the profile of the school locally and nationally. You will support the operation of the school’s many open days and assist the School Leadership Team with welcoming prospective parents and answering their questions. Working closely with the central group marketing team, you will help to smoothly handle international applications generated from leads overseas, ensuring that candidates are suitable for entry to the school and meet our requirements. You’ll also play a key role in ensuring compliance with visa and sponsorship regulations.
You will need to be a creative and people-orientated person, who thrives on organising complex and changing projects, identifying innovative opportunities and delivering best value for money within the budget. You will wholeheartedly support our aims as an independent day and boarding school, where many parents make significant financial sacrifices to fund their children’s education. If you join us, you will benefit from opportunities for professional development and the chance to be part of a friendly and encouraging staff team, in an optimistic and enjoyable working environment. We welcome applications from a range of different industries and career sectors.
