This top-rated and successful independent school is now looking for a full-time marketing and development expert to expand the ‘business’ side of the school, working closely with the headmaster and bursar to encourage and facilitate investment in the school’s future. 

You will need an excellent ability to communicate both in person and in print. You will also need to be a confident self-starter, keen to get in touch with heads of schools, Cumnor alumni, councillors and local residents, amongst others, promoting the use of the school facilities, fund-raising for the Foundation, and enhancing the school’s profile as a whole.

  You will therefore need to be business orientated, articulate and impressive without being brash or overbearing. You will need experience, supported by an appropriate degree, of planning and organising events, coordinating projects, developing partnerships and managing a budget.  Professional marketing experience would be of great benefit, but excellent computer literacy and facility with social media are essential. 

A generous salary will take into account qualifications, experience and evidence of potential, but recent graduates who feel they have real ability are encouraged to apply. Please note that applications will be considered as they arrive. 

Cumnor House is an equal opportunities employer, committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced criminal record check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Applicants are asked to send their detailed Curriculum Vitae with a covering letter to or by post to Teresa Mockridge, HR, Cumnor House Sussex, Danehill, Haywards Heath, West Sussex, RH17 7HT.
