Job description

We need an outgoing self-motivated person to lead our marketing work communicating our mission to schools, coaches and pupils through social media and email communications.

You will be responsible for our social media, email campaigns and play a key role in building our pupil and coach communities.


About Us

We are a social mobility movement committed to ensuring that every young person experiences educational equity.

As an award-winning, fast-growing charity our mission is to support young people from disadvantaged communities to identify and fulfil their potential. Working in partnership with schools, we deliver academic tutoring programmes that improve a pupil’s grades, confidence and independence so they can win places at top universities and on high level apprenticeships.

Having turned six years old in February 2020, we’re at an exciting stage of growth and have ambitious plans to scale our impact and reach. This academic year, we are supporting over 4000 pupils. Currently working across London, the South East, the West Midlands and the South East, we are looking to thoughtfully scale our academic programmes into hard-to-reach deprivation areas.


Key Areas of Responsibility

  • Lead on using our platforms to communicate with our pupils, coaches and teachers (Instagram, Linkedin, Twitter and Facebook)
  • Create and schedule original content for our platforms
  • Collaborate with the programmes team to ensure the latest delivery news is shared

Email campaigns:

  • Create and deliver targeted campaigns to our key stakeholders so they feel part of our social mobility movement,

Joint brand engagement with partners:
