Job Description

Admissions and Marketing Co-ordinator

We are looking for an outstanding individual to develop and deliver all aspects of our Admissions and Marketing activities. This is an important position, and the successful candidate will be joining Lyonsdown at an exciting time – as we become all-girls and launch our new strategic plan.

The key purpose of the Admissions and Marketing Co-ordinator’s role is:

  • to support families through their Admissions journey from first contact through to joining the School
  • to proactively and positively promote the School through a variety of marketing and communication activities

Reporting to the School Business Manager, where we are currently also recruiting to this post, your role will be to capture and share updates on what makes Lyonsdown special in our day-to-day school life as well as to communicate the exciting changes and developments we have planned – to both our current and prospective parent community.

The candidate will also be responsible for undertaking all aspects of our Admissions – to pro-actively sell the School to prospective parents and to support their journey to join Lyonsdown by delivering exceptional customer care which best reflects our family-focused community.

This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to grow, shape and develop all aspects of the School’s admissions and marketing. We are looking for a friendly and positive ‘can-do’ attitude, an organised approach and excellent customer-facing communication skills. Previous marketing and admissions experience are essential to ensure the candidate can ‘hit the ground running’ in our busy school environment, as is the ability to work collaboratively to deliver excellence in all aspects of the role. The candidate will be supported and guided by our external consultant to facilitate a good induction to independent school admissions and marketing.

This flexible position is for 30 hours per week during term time, plus seven weeks of flexible working during the school holidays. During term time the candidate would ideally be in school each day or, with agreement, four days per week. There will be some mutual flexibility on the working hours for the right candidate. There are, however, a small number of admissions events (e.g. open events) and Governor meetings which may take place in the evenings or at weekends where the candidate would be required to attend (and for which time off in lieu may be given).

Salary: £24-28k FTE (To be agreed depending on qualifications and experience).

Closing date: 12th September 2021, 5pm

First stage Zoom interview: 14th September 2021 (flexible timings to suit candidates)

Second stage interviews in school: 21st September 2021

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to enhanced DBS and other checks in line with safer recruitment best practice.
