At the North East Learning Trust, our vision is simple and shared by all staff – that every child experiences excellence every day. This culture permeates everything we do and everyone’s role. The purpose of the NELT Institute is to extend our vision for excellence beyond our schools' gates.

We are looking for a skilled and dedicated colleague to join our growing team. You will be responsible for managing our external communications and marketing with the aim of maximising teacher engagement with our range of professional development offers.

We are at an exciting point in our development. Over recent years, the range and quality of support that we provide to other schools has grown and diversified. We have just been appointed a Teaching School Hub meaning that we will be responsible for critical aspects of teacher development across our region. We are now bringing together all of our external offers into The NELT Institute to optimise both our internal operations and how we meet local schools' needs.

The Communications and Marketing Manager role is new and will play a central role in the next phase of our development. This will be a rewarding job where you will plan and deliver an integrated communications and marketing strategy to maximise engagement with the NELT Institute and ensure an excellent user experience for our programmes.

Our ideal candidate will be analytical, well-organised and committed to ensuring our work is of the highest standard. You will be able to craft messages that cut through with busy teachers. You will write really well and care about good writing. You will be strategic in developing and implementing our communications and marketing strategy.


Monday 12th April at 12 pm. Shortlisting will take place Tuesday 13th April, with interviews taking place week commencing Monday 19th April.
