Description

Mulgrave is one of Canada’s leading independent, co-educational, pre-K to Grade 12 day schools, serving the North Shore of Vancouver. We are an established IB Continuum World School with a reputation for excellence and innovation. We are now seeking applicants for the role of Communications and Marketing Associate. 

The Communications and Marketing Associate is responsible for developing great content for Mulgrave’s extensive internal and external communications channels and initiatives. Well-suited for a go-getter, this position reports to the Senior Manager of Marketing, Admissions and Communications (SMMAC) and works closely and collaboratively with the school’s Advancement and Admissions staff, as well as others throughout the school. 

Under the guidance of the SMMAC, the Associate will reflect our culture and brand voice, share Mulgrave’s stories through regular publications and our digital presence, market our admissions opportunities and programmes such as Summer Camps, and connect with key audiences to build affinity with the school. 

To provide the best possible learning environment for our highly diverse, multicultural student population, Mulgrave actively seeks to recruit staff from groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in independent and international school faculties. BIPoC and 2SLGBTQ+ and those with disabilities are warmly encouraged to apply, and invited to reach out for more information about our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.

Please note: A Digital Communications & Marketing Associate position has also been posted. The school will hire for one role based on the suitability of applicants to both postings. If you feel you have skills and expertise outlined in both roles, please reference that in your cover letter.
