Director of External Relations


Queenswood is a progressive boarding and day school for over 400 girls aged 11 – 18, set in a beautiful 120-acre site in the Hertfordshire countryside close to London. Awarded excellent in all categories in a recent ISI inspection, Queenswood is an exceptional school providing a happy and positive environment for girls to thrive. An all-round education focuses on equipping them with all the life skills required of women in the 21st century.

This is an exciting time for the School with a major £3m investment programme already underway. Brand new sporting facilities, due for completion in September, will be followed by an extensive refurbishment of some of the boarding accommodation to provide modern, vibrant and well-equipped living spaces.

Reporting to the Principal, as a member of the School’s Senior Management Team, the Director of External Relations will provide inspiring and strategic leadership of all marketing, admissions and development activities across the whole School.

The successful candidate will be a proactive and results-orientated individual with an established track record in strategic marketing, communications and leadership within a relevant Marketing or Communications environment. This exciting and diverse role demands excellent verbal, written and presentation skills combined with the presence, intellect and vision to represent the School at all levels.

The post will most likely attract an experienced professional from the independent education sector. Alternatively, the role might suit an exceptional individual with commercial experience gained outside the sector but who can demonstrate an understanding of and empathy with independent education and the School's ethos and values, and with the relevant transferable skills to undertake and make a success of this pivotal role.

A willingness to travel locally, nationally and internationally will be required.
