Head of Marketing and Engagement

Co-op Academies TrustManchester

A fantastic opportunity for a creative, resourceful and strategic marketing and communications professional to join our innovative and dynamic team!

Love variety? Leading on communications and engagement strategies for our growing Trust, you’ll have the opportunity to make your mark and contribute across a broad remit including internal and external communication, colleague and community engagement, academy marketing, public relations, and brand.

We’re looking for a confident communicator with a solutions-focused approach, a depth of relevant experience and great leadership skills. You’ll be responsible for building strong relationships with audiences and stakeholders both internally and externally, and supporting our academies with local actions.

Reporting to the Chief People Officer with regular communication with the CEO, and managing a small team, you’ll be responsible for maximising the impact of our relationship with the Co-op as a sponsor to ensure we generate interest and continue to build our reputation and profile. 

Education is really important to us. It’s the colleagues in our academies who drive improvement on a day-to-day basis, and we are looking for someone who wants to make a real difference to the lives of the children through their work, and who will keep co-operative values at the forefront of everything they do.

As an aware employer, Co-op Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding, and protecting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults is its number one priority. This commitment to robust recruitment, selection, and induction procedures extends to organisations and services linked to the Trust on its behalf.
