We are seeking a Director of Marketing to provide inspiring and strategic leadership of the School’s marketing activities.  The successful applicant will be a key public face of the School.  This is a new role and an outstanding opportunity for a commercially minded, strategic marketing professional who combines demonstrable leadership skills with an extensive marketing and/or communications background.

The post will most likely attract an experienced professional from the independent education sector.  Alternatively, the role might suit an exceptional individual with wider educational or commercial experience gained outside the sector but who has an instinctive feel for the School’s customers and their needs, bringing with them the relevant skills to undertake this complex and exciting job.

This is a role that has both strategic and ‘hands-on’ elements; it is a pivotal role within a busy and dynamic team. The postholder will effectively and efficiently manage and lead on all aspects of the School’s day-to-day marketing and be responsible for the implementation of the School’s strategic marketing plan. The successful applicant will have excellent communication skills, be able to maintain a high level of efficiency and be calm, confident and professional. A sound understanding of Independent education would be a distinct advantage. The postholder will oversee marketing across the whole School to strengthen the School’s overall standing and reputation.  The Director of Marketing will take the lead in developing and delivering outstanding marketing and pupil recruitment strategies and work closely with the Admissions team.

A job description, full person specification and application form can be downloaded via the Vacancies section on the School’s website at www.eteach.com/careers/kgs-org/

 The closing date for applications is 10th November 2021 with provisional first round interviews being held on Thursday, 18th and Friday, 19th November 2021.

Kingston Grammar School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
