Job description

We are looking to appoint an experienced Recruitment Marketing & Communications specialist to join the Harris Federation’s growing Talent Attraction & Resourcing (TA&R) Team. As our Senior Talent Attraction Manager, you will be at the forefront of employer branding and recruitment marketing within the Federation. 

This post offers autonomy, freedom to innovate and the chance to lead on the development and implementation of an attraction strategy that covers entry level hires up to executive leadership.

You will be working across email marketing, PPC, SEO, Content marketing, social media, print and much more to help build the Federation’s employer brand and support a range of recruitment activities including staff recruitment, CPD, teacher training, events and student admissions.

This post offers great growth potential and the opportunity to expand into other areas of the Federation including admissions, sixth form marketing, academy branding and wider Federation initiatives and projects. It would suit a creative individual who can work both strategically while also being hands on in order to develop a long-term employer brand strategy, and create highly engaging, innovative and impactful marketing campaigns.
