Working for Wolverhampton Grammar School

Currently recruiting

  • Director of Marketing & Communications

    Founded in 1512, Wolverhampton Grammar School is one of the oldest schools in the country. As a selective, co-educational, and socially diverse independent school of 757 students aged 4-18 years, it enjoys an outstanding reputation. Award-winning and judged “Excellent” by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, this is a fantastic opportunity to join a nationally recognised, forward-thinking school.

    The School now seeks an inspirational and dynamic leader, with senior level expertise in marketing, internal and external engagement and communications, to join the Senior Management Team following 7 years’ exceptional service by the outgoing postholder. The appointee will lead a community of professional support staff and teachers who excel in delivering an individual, personalised learning experience.

    This leadership position will suit an experienced and innovative professional with a proven track record within a marketing and communications related context. The appointee will possess excellent relationship-building and leadership skills, as well as creative marketing abilities and the entrepreneurial instincts to ensure Wolverhampton Grammar School continues to thrive.

    Experience of working within an educational environment is not essential. The role would also suit an exceptional individual with similar sales, marketing or communications experience gained in the commercial or charitable sector, but who has an instinctive feel for the independent school market combined with the relevant transferable skills to undertake this complex and fulfilling role.

    Wolverhampton Grammar School has retained the services of Perrett Laver to help identify the widest possible field of suitable candidates and assist in the assessment of applicants against the requirements for the role. An executive search exercise is being undertaken alongside the public advertisement of the post.

    For further information about the role, and details of how to apply, please visit https://candidates.perrettlaver.com/vacancies/, quoting reference 5508. The closing date for applications is 08:30 GMT on Thursday 6th January 2022.
