We are looking for an exceptional Head of Marketing to lead on our external marketing and user acquisition strategy. This role will require experience of building digital connections with consumers, growing WhiteHat's presence on social media, and developing WhiteHat's position as the place to get access to the very best apprenticeships.

● Design a comprehensive marketing strategy to increase WhiteHat's reach among 16-23 year olds
● Expand the networks of young people we reach, as well as improving our digital presence/content
● Build a lasting digital connection with a wide range of 16-23 year olds
● Monitor and expand our social media footprint
● Deepen WhiteHat’s focus on a data driven approach to marketing
● Use multiple online advertising methods e.g. Google Adwords, Facebook to increase company and brand awareness
● Develop WhiteHat's proposition as the place to go if you want to accelerate your career at some of the world's best companies, without going to university

About You

● Past experience building audiences online, ideally targeting the under 25s market

● You are passionate about helping to deliver the best learning opportunities to young people
● You care deeply about how both our customers and our users perceive us

● We are all owners: we think about the impact of our actions on the team, the company and on our external perception
● Good people win: we believe that respect flows both ways; we are approachable, warm and responsive
● We put others first: we go above and beyond to create an exceptional service and experience for our users
● We believe in social mobility: your background should never define your destination

● 27 days holiday a year + bank holidays
