We are looking for a digital savvy international student recruitment and marketing specialist to join the team at one of the UK’s most distinctive day and boarding schools.
RIC is Kent’s fresh alternative to traditional independent education from Year 7 to Sixth Form. All teaching takes place in small, informal groups of mixed ability students. There’s no uniform and everyone is on first name terms. We focus on the highest levels of academic achievement while retaining a creative buzz.
This is a new position and we are looking for a creative and charismatic individual to lead on international recruitment for the College. You’ll craft imaginatively and articulate fluently the tone and image of RIC in person and online. You’ll be able to command the confidence of potential students and their parents and excite them about the prospect of choosing RIC.
The role will include both marketing and admissions functions. The job description will be finalised according to the experience and expertise of the successful candidate but your main purpose will be to ensure the effective promotion of RIC internationally and to drive student recruitment. You’ll be experienced in handling international sales and admissions and comfortable with a consultative approach to sales. You’ll be happy to travel internationally, representing RIC at school fairs and agent conferences but also keen to get involved in all aspects of the College, including helping with domestic student recruitment activities when required.
