We are looking for a PR and Events Manager to join our Marketing team based in our Brighton office.

Who we are:


We're a student specialist marketing group. Connected and curious.

We think student. We do, we learn, we refine, and we apply what we’ve learnt, just like students (and let’s face it, we could all be a bit more student).

Impact is something to aspire to - looking beyond impressions, reach, clicks, conversions and inspiring a focus on the bigger picture. More students enquiring, applying, and enrolling.

Let's work together!
