About Whole Education:
Whole Education is a fast growing non-profit, with a small central team drawn mostly from the education and third sectors.
WE are a values-driven organisation, sharing a vision for a more rounded, broad education for young people in English schools. WE believe this kind of whole education can support all young people, regardless of their backgrounds, to thrive in their future life, learning and work.
WE run a number of programmes and events for school teachers and leaders to improve their ability to provide this kind of education. The heart of our work is our membership network, where values-aligned schools pay a yearly fee for membership. In return, they get access to a number of our programmes for their staff. WE also help them to network and build a community of like minded educators.
WE had been recognised by a number of groups and publications for our work driving educational innovation including by the House of Commons Parliamentary Select Committee and the OECD.
Who are we looking for
We are looking to recruit a Communications manager who is passionate about Whole Education’s vision and feels able to bring their experience and strength to support the organisation.
You will bring experience of having worked in a communications role for a number of years to the role.
You will likely have worked in the education sector but this is not essential.
You will be happy delivering on all aspects of communications for a small not-for-profit organisation – from daily activities (e.g. using social media/sending newsletters/updating the website) to more strategic planning – eg brand management and campaigns to celebrate the success and impact of our work.
Whatever your background you will be a highly organised individual with excellent communications skills . You will be comfortable working in a fast paced environment and excited by the opportunity to both deliver and develop the communications strategy to support the organisation, our member schools and our stakeholders. You will be an independent self-starter who is confident driving work forwards, whilst enthusiastic about working as part of a small and passionate team in the not-for-profit sector.
What will you do:
As the Communications Manager your role would lead the delivery of Whole Education’s communications strategy in order to increase awareness and engagement with Whole Education’s work.
In particular, this means marketing Whole Education membership, programmes and events across the education sector and sharing their impact.
It also means maintaining, quality assuring and promoting the Whole Education brand online, through physical collateral and at events (face to face and virtual). Whilst this is a home based job, you will need to ocassionally travel to London for team meetings or other areas of the country for events.
