The Girls’ School has 620 11-16 year old students on roll and is rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted being in the top 2% of schools in the country for attainment.  The Trust serves the local community in Hammersmith and Fulham and each school is fully inclusive striving to achieve the best outcomes  for all its students, who often have multiple disadvantages. 

We have recently decided to combine the various marketing roles and responsibilities into a single post across the schools in the Trust and are looking to recruit to a new post of Marketing Officer.  A background in education is desirable as the successful candidate will use all of their marketing skills and experience to promote the interests of the Trust schools. The role will entail a particular focus on student recruitment at secondary transfer through close liaison with local primary schools and responsibility for the delivery and further development of our transition programme. 

The post holder will also be involved in supporting our staff recruitment team and assisting with all manner of external communications with a variety of stakeholders. This will include full responsibility for the website and social media communication at each school.

The successful candidate will need to be adept at working within both the freedoms and compliance requirements of academy status. 

Initially based at Fulham College Boys’ School the successful candidate will be expected to report to the Senior Leadership Teams across the Trust. 

If you can demonstrate the moral purpose and desire to use your marketing skills to serve the student population of the Fulham College Academy Trust and would welcome the opportunity to use prior experience to develop the role to support the trust in moving forwards then we would welcome an application from you. 

We welcome visits from applicants. If you are interested in joining us and wish to discuss the opportunity further before making an application or make an appointment to view the school please contact Tim Scott, Chief Operations Officer on 0207 381 0861.
