Director of Marketing and Communications – Marlborough College



Applications are invited for the post of Director of Marketing and Communications at Marlborough College with effect from January 2020 (or as soon as possible thereafter).

Founded in 1843, Marlborough College is the largest co-educational full boarding school in the UK, with c.1000 pupils aged 13-18 years. The College is widely regarded as one of the UK’s leading boarding schools offering a contemporary, challenging and enriching education.

Reporting directly to the Master, this is a pivotal strategic leadership role. The Director of Marketing and Communications will provide dynamic and creative strategic leadership for marketing and external communications in order to enhance the brand perception of Marlborough College and further its regional, national and global profile, together with its pupil recruitment reach.

This exciting leadership position will be most likely suited to an experienced and innovative professional from the independent boarding schools’ sector with a proven track record within a marketing, communications or external relations related context. Alternatively, the role might suit an exceptional individual with similar commercial marketing experience gained outside the sector but who has an instinctive feel for the independent boarding market, combined with the relevant transferable skills to undertake this complex and fulfilling job.
