Role: Marketing manager
Hours per week: 3 to 4 days per week

About us: The GT Scholar’s programme is a social enterprise that tackles educational inequality by helping state school pupils gain access to the most selective universities and the most competitive careers.

What do we do? GT Scholars on our programme receive after school one-to-one or small group tutoring on a weekly basis. They are matched with a mentor to support them throughout the year and they take part in enrichment activities such as STEM activity days, Study skill workshops and career days and trips to the city. We also run parent workshops and community engagement events to ensure that parents are aware of local opportunities available to them.

What makes us different? There are a range of charitable organisations and social enterprises offering programmes to improve the life chances of young people. However, The GT Scholars programme has the capacity to work with all state school pupils, not just those on Free School Meals. This means that we are able to help a wide range of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds and pupils do not need to be referred by their school in order to qualify for support.

Responsibilities: We are looking for a paid member of staff to support the organisation with meeting its annual sales and turnover goals. Responsibilities include:

  • Managing a team of interns, volunteers and team members to assist with sales, marketing and media
  • Creating, implementing and monitoring the marketing plan and strategy for the organisation
  • Analysing our marketing budget and strategy to check and improve our effectiveness
  • Organising events to promote the GT Scholars brand

  • Be passionate and committed to the organisation’s vision and aims
  • Be educated to a minimum of degree level
  • Enjoy working in a diverse team
  • Be numerate and possess strong communication skills both written and verbal
  • Be punctual, organised and have experience within an office environment
