A New Year and a fresh start

 
Two exciting opportunities are now available to become part of Morrison’s Academy’s growing External Relations Department.  Founded in 1860, Morrison’s Academy is Perthshire’s leading Independent Day School. We are a friendly, family-orientated school and provide quality education to approximately 500 pupils from ages 3 to18 years.   
 
Our External Relations Department is responsible for the Marketing, Admissions and Alumni activities of the school.  The department is one of the school’s key commercial support functions. This past year has seen the creation of a new Head of Department position and the development of new strategic plans and objectives.  We are now ready to continue building the team to deliver our plans and are seeking two talented individuals, a Marketing Officer and an Events & Alumni Officer.  
 
About the role - Marketing Officer
We are looking for an ambitious marketing professional to join our growing team.  In our department, no two days are the same and you should be willing to turn your hand to anything; from conducting market research, writing a press release, developing a social media plan, to taking photos at a school event.  You will work very closely with the Head of Department, initially helping to establish the processes and tools that will enable the department to function efficiently and in the long term, to developing and delivering the strategies that will help ensure the school’s continued growth.  While the role is full time with working hours usually being between 08.30 - 16.30, some work outwith normal school hours will be required to support events.
 
About you
You will be degree educated with marketing experience gained in different organisations. You will be an enthusiastic self starter who enjoys a challenge.  You will be looking for a role that will stretch your capabilities and allow you to develop your skills, which will lead to more responsibility within the team over time.  You will be personable and able to represent the school in different environments and with a variety of people. You will also have a creative flare and an eye for detail.  
 
What we can offer you
A great team: Working in Morrison’s Academy’s External Relations department you will be part of a small, friendly and supportive team who work collaboratively to get the job done.  With over 120 staff members in the school you will have opportunities to work with a wide variety of inspiring colleagues on a wide range of activities, not to mention our lovely pupils and their families.  Working in a school is very rewarding; it allows you to see the immediate impact that your efforts make on the lives of our pupils and families.
 
Career and development opportunities: We are committed to continuing professional development and support our teams in improving their skills and developing new ones.  Couple this with all of the informal opportunities provided in a diverse role and a supportive manager and you can rest assured that you will constantly grow and learn new skills.
 
A great location: The school is located in Crieff, an easy commute from the central belt, Perth and the surrounding rural communities.  The school is located in the centre of this bustling market town and provides easy access to a good selection of local amenities. 
 
Salary and a whole host of benefits: A competitive salary and benefits package is available for the right candidate, with a salary that is likely to be in the region of £25k (experience dependent), with pension scheme and some flexible benefits including generous holiday, discounted school fees and access to wrap around care services while you are working.
