The Creative Education Trust is a non-profit educational charity recognised by the Department for Education as one of the leading multi-academy groups. We support a growing network of schools to achieve academic success for our students. At the forefront nationally of improvement in academic standards, curricular innovation and staff development, our educational vision harnesses creativity to knowledge and skills. We define creativity as the ability to find connections between the things we know and turn these connections into new ideas and action. With knowledge, skills and creativity, we ensure that our students are equipped to succeed in the global economy of the 21st century.

The CET schools network currently consists of seven secondary academies and five primary academies across the Midlands and East Anglia. We plan to expand the number of academies in the network to around twenty over the next two years. This scale will allow our schools to collaborate even more effectively to develop imaginative new ways of delivering education, whilst preserving the ‘bespoke’ approach that we currently offer. Our aim is to develop a network of like-minded and ambitious schools that includes academies, free schools and teaching schools.

Our schools rely on the proven experience of our Head Office team to provide exceptional support with educational improvement, curriculum design, strategy, finance, operations, and marketing and communications.

CET is seeking to appoint an exceptional and ambitious Head of Marketing to join the Programme team at its head office in Holborn. Initially, the primary focus of this role will be to maximise the recruitment and retention of students to our academies, which is a critical component in ensuring our continued success. This is a new position, and is a fantastic opportunity for the right individual to develop our marketing and communications service to schools.
