Marketing Officer - UK Recruitment

The University of Northampton

Location Park Campus
Marketing at the University of Northampton has never been more important – not only are we moving to a new, state-of-the-art, town centre campus in 2018 but the Higher Education sector is continually changing. To help us achieve our strategic goals, we are seeking an exceptional Marketing Officer to join our Schools and Colleges Engagement Team.

This varied role provides the unique opportunity to implement marketing strategy in the increasingly competitive HE sector with daily face-to-face engagement with your target audience. Highly organised and motivated, the successful candidate will require excellent presentation and networking skills, and be able to provide accurate and clear advice on a wide range of subjects. Commanding a room of young people with varying degrees of knowledge and interest will come naturally and you will be open to extensive UK-based travel and working independently.

Candidates should have a strong understanding of Higher Education and the challenges and opportunities in the sector and be prepared to be flexible in their approach to the role. Previous marketing experience is preferred.

You will be required to identify, evaluate and respond to student recruitment opportunities at both undergraduate and postgraduate level across the UK. Additionally, the post holder will contribute to the development and implementation of a marketing plan to recruit from target schools and colleges within the UK.

This is an exciting time to join our University as we prepare to relocate to a new state of the art, vibrant, town centre campus in 2018. We are looking to recruit individuals who share our passion for innovation, creativity and social impact and who will play a key role as we realise our ambition of TRANSFORMING LIVES + INSPIRING CHANGE.

We are an AshokaU accredited Changemaker University that believes in providing students and staff with the opportunity to change their world for the better.

All candidates will be asked to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK at interview. Due to the requirements laid out by UK Visas and Immigration regarding Right to Work in the UK, the University can only accept applications from individuals who currently have a status allowing them to work in the UK for this position.
