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 and the Marketing & Admissions team, this role is integral to the success of the recruitment of pupils entering Reception through to Year 6.
Within the scope of Admissions, 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.
Within the Marketing remit, you will focus on the planning and execution of marketing activities across various channels such as social media and the website, as well as print communications and collateral to support the reputation of the school and the recruitment and retention of pupils.
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 inquiry 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 while 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 to support pupil recruitment as well as raise the profile of the School within the local community. You will have the opportunity to lead on specific projects and increase your skill set by taking on various 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 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, parent visits and maintain the Prep Schools social media channels and presence on the school website.
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. As 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, requiring someone proactive and forward-thinking to ensure that during peak periods you are well-prepared and responsive to the demands of the job.
