Communications Manager

Based at Kensington Campus (mobile between sites)

The web is a vital channel of communication and Southbank International School uses its website as its main tool for providing information to (prospective) parents, students, and staff. For this reason, a professional, engaging and user-friendly website is crucial both internally and externally. We are looking for a dynamic, self-motivated individual with experience and skills in web content management to create, develop and manage content on the school’s website. The appointed person will also be expected to build and maintain a strong social media presence on platforms including Twitter, Facebook and any others as appropriate. Although management of the School’s website and digital communications will form the bulk of this role, the role-holder will be expected to work with colleagues/ support the production and delivery of other communications and marketing materials.

The role-holder will need to be able to manage a varied workload including projects which may be either reactive or proactive in nature. The role may involve occasional out-of-hours’ work.

The appointed candidate will be someone educated to a degree level who has demonstrable experience in web editing, a high level of technical ability and the ability to learn new systems quickly and thoroughly. They should also have a thorough understanding of Data Protection, Intellectual Property, Copyright Law, Freedom of Information and their application.

In addition to writing, editing, and proofreading site content, the appointed candidate will work closely with the technical team who host the website to maintain site standards with regard to new developments. 

The School is unable to offer Tier 2 sponsorship for this role. Please ensure that you already have the legal right to work and reside in the UK.

Please find attached the Candidate Pack for further information about the role. To apply, please complete the application form below and return it to jobs@southbank.org we will not accept CV’s for this role.

Closing date for applications: 13 October 2017. (NB Interviews may take place before this date should an excellent candidate be identified early in the application process so interested candidates are advised to apply as soon as possible).

The job holder’s responsibility for promoting and safeguarding the welfare of children and young persons for whom they are responsible, or with whom they come into contact, will be to adhere to and ensure compliance with the relevant Cognita Safeguarding: Child Protection Policy and Procedures at all times. If in the course of carrying out the duties of the role, the job holder identifies any instance that a child is suffering or likely to suffer significant harm either at school or at home, they must report any concerns to the School’s Child Protection Officer/Designated Safeguarding Lead or to the Principal, or make a referral directly to the local child protection authorities.
