Director of Marketing & Admissions
Frensham Heights is seeking to appoint an ambitious, creative and commercially-minded Director of Marketing and Admissions. Reporting to the Head, and a member of the Extended Leadership Team, the post holder will provide inspiring and strategic leadership of Frensham’s Marketing and Admissions activities across the school. This role is crucial in supporting the delivery of our new strategic ambitions incorporating the school’s vision, mission, aims and values, to strengthen the school’s distinctive brand, increase its national and international reach, realise student recruitment targets and deliver a customer-focused application journey.
This is a high-profile and exciting leadership position suited to a senior commercial marketing professional who can demonstrate established and effective leadership skills, combined with an extensive marketing, communications or a marketing-led sales background featuring an international aspect. Prior experience of working in a school is not essential but the successful candidate will have empathy for independent education in general and the distinctive Frensham ethos in particular, combined with an instinctive feel for the school’s customers and their needs.
The successful candidate will be an articulate, persuasive and credible ambassador for the school and will possess excellent communication and relationship-building skills.

Knowledge of the most effective marketing and admissions techniques and tools to help Frensham achieve its strategic objectives will be essential.
This is a full time post based on a 37.5 hour working week, some of which may be unsocial hours and at weekends, depending on the needs of the school.
