Marketing Manager - Manchester - £35,000 -Education

Our client are a force to be reckoned with within the education sector - they were acquired by a large private equity investor in April this year who are pumping tons of cash into developing and improving the business. There’s been huge investment in digital over the past 12 months, with a roadmap of exciting projects in the pipeline still to come, and there’s currently new 20 live vacancies across the team.

As part of the investment they’ve had a total office refurbishment to bring it in to 2021 which has given them a seriously cool place to work for the days when they are in the office, created a big focus on ESG (to make the business more sustainable and eco-friendly) and have also begun a campaign on diversity and inclusion.

They have a fantastic team culture; supportive, friendly and close-knit – one of those teams you actually enjoy being in the office with.

You will have the opportunity to works across 6 websites within the group so tons of variety and new stuff to go after. Also, as it’s a new role for the business so no legacy/historical ways of working to have to undo – you can make the role your own.

They currently have a hybrid working model: 2 days in the office, 2 days at home, 1 day of your choosing either way.
