Does your marketing experience gained at strategic, tactical and operational levels include marketing to youth audiences using an evidence-based, segmented and targeted approach? Are you looking for a challenging role in an environment that is open, vibrant and welcomes new ideas? Then join the University of East London (UEL) as School Marketing Manager and help shape the way we market the University’s academic schools in the future.

At UEL we know the world of work is changing and that means our students will need to develop critical thinking, emotional intelligence and resilience to realise their potential, which is why we’ve embedded these future-proofed tools at the heart of every one of our degrees. Our marketing team is responsible for a range of activities from portfolio development and strategic marketing planning to management of corporate and subject-specific campaigns. Join us and you’ll play a crucial role in helping to build the UEL brand and promoting our courses to prospective students.

Your challenge? To support the marketing needs of the university’s academic Schools by guiding the delivery of strategic marketing plans and activities through the effective management of the School Marketing team. You’ll also work closely with the Head of Marketing to provide planning and reporting frameworks and project management processes that will ensure the Schools receive a valuable marketing service to help support their student recruitment and strategic goals. And, when it comes to focusing on supporting conversion through school and subject-specific information, communications, content and collateral, again, we’ll count on you.

As well as a relevant degree, your marketing experience includes using market research, insight and analysis to identify and evaluate marketing opportunities and inform plans. You also have a proven ability to manage a team of marketing professionals to deliver results. Working knowledge of the UK Higher Education system, in particular recruitment cycles, admissions systems and processes, is preferred, as is an understanding of cultural differences and how to manage these in the context of student marketing. Adept at planning and prioritising work, you’re great at using your initiative and creativity to resolve problems too. What’s more, you’re self-motivated, have excellent attention to detail and are able to communicate with credibility, tact and diplomacy, both internally and externally.

At UEL, we aim to attract and retain the best possible staff and offer a working environment at the heart of a dynamic region with excellent transport links. You can look forward to a warm, sincere welcome, genuine camaraderie and mobility in an institution led with passion, visibility and purpose. Your impact, resilience and sense of collegiality will directly contribute to UEL’s future and those of the students whose lives you will touch and change forever.

We also offer a great range of benefits including pension, family friendly policies and an on-site nursery and gym at our Docklands Campus.

The successful candidate will be employed by UEL Professional Services Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of UEL. Employees of UEL Professional Services Ltd work alongside UEL colleagues in delivery of UEL’s mission, and UEL Professional Services Ltd will adopt UEL HR policies and procedures in full. Further detail regarding employment benefits can be found in the employee benefits section of our recruitment pages.
