Director of Marketing and Admissions

The Blue Coat School is a leading independent day preparatory school offering an outstanding educational experience to over 620 boys and girls aged 3-11 years. Founded in 1722 and celebrating its 300th anniversary this year, the School occupies a beautiful site in Edgbaston, in 15 acres of playing fields and gardens. It is a thriving community where children achieve great things, not just academically but in all areas.

Reporting to the Headmaster and a member of the Senior Leadership Team, the Director of Marketing and Admissions will provide strategic direction and flawless delivery of the School’s marketing, communications and admissions activities. This is an outstanding opportunity for a commercially minded, dynamic and creative marketer, who combines demonstrable leadership skills with a track record of success in strategic online and offline marketing communications gained from within or outside the education sector.

This role is pivotal to the strategic development of the Blue Coat vision, as the School explores opportunities for growth within the external market over the next 5-10 years. Developing new and innovative ways to reach more pupils who would benefit from the School’s generous and transformational Bursary scheme will also be a priority.

The successful candidate will be an articulate, persuasive and credible ambassador for the School and will possess excellent communication and relationship-building skills. Enthusiasm, energy and a hands-on approach to problem-solving and getting things done are also fundamental to this role. Prior experience of working in a school is not essential but she/he will have an instinctive feel for the School’s customers and their needs.
