Appointment of a Director of Marketing and Communications (part time) for January 2018 (or by negotiation for the right candidate).
The Headmaster is seeking to appoint a uniquely talented, hard-working and visionary individual to become the School's Director of Marketing and Communications. This is a new role at ECS, and reflects the Headmaster’s commitment to, and passion for, the on-going development of Exeter’s
oldest school. At the heart of the role is the expectation to be the principal ambassador for all marketing and communications.
The Director of Marketing and Communications, who will be a member of the School’s Senior Leadership Team, will be responsible for the outward presentation, positioning, branding and visibility of the School; for ensuring a steady influx of appropriate pupils; and for establishing and developing links with former pupils and with the wider community.
The successful candidate is likely to be a highly-motivated individual with experience of marketing/development/branding/communications, perhaps gleaned from a business environment or from the world of education.
With the arrival of a new Headmaster and a new Assistant Head in January 2016; the appointment of a new Head of Boarding, the introduction of a Chorister Tutor, and the creation of a number of new and significant middle/senior leadership posts (pastoral and academic) in September 2016;
the appointment of a former hockey international as our new Director of Sport in January 2017; and the imminent arrival from New Zealand of our new Director of Music, this is a seriouslyexciting time to be joining this ambitious School as it embarks upon the next stage of its development.
An Information Pack, which gives information about the School, the surrounding area, the Job Description and Person Specification, as well as details of the application process, is available.
Closing date for applications is 12 noon on Friday 24th November 2017. Interviews for shortlisted candidates are likely to be held in the week beginning 27th November 2017.
For an application form or further enquiries, please contact the School’s Bursar (and Head of HR), Mrs Sharon Groves, via email@example.com. The Headmaster will be happy to have informal discussions about the role.
