Director of Marketing and Admissions
Wycliffe College is a thriving independent co-educational Day and Boarding school for over 620 pupils aged 3-18 years. Set within the heart of the Gloucestershire Cotswolds on a beautiful 52-acre site the College enjoys excellent links to London both by road and rail and is within half an hour of the first-class amenities on offer in Cheltenham, Gloucester and Bristol.
Wycliffe is seeking to appoint an ambitious, creative and commercially-minded Director of Marketing and Admissions. Reporting to the Head, and a member of the Leadership Team, the post holder will provide inspiring and strategic leadership of Wycliffe’s Marketing and Admissions activities across the College’s Prep and Senior Schools. This role is crucial in supporting the delivery of Wycliffe’s strategic ambitions, to strengthen the College’s brand, increase its national and international reach, realise pupil 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.

The successful candidate will be an articulate, persuasive and credible ambassador for the College and will possess excellent communication and relationship-building skills. A highly analytical marketing professional who is ready to hit the ground running and ensure that admissions targets are met and strategy is improved would thrive in this role. Knowledge of the most effective marketing and admissions techniques and tools to help Wycliffe achieve its strategic objectives will be essential.
