Royal Grammar School Guildford (the RGS), one of the UK’s pre-eminent independent schools, and Cognita, the leading global schools group, seek a creative and entrepreneurial Head of Marketing and Admissions for their new school, Royal Grammar School Guildford Dubai (RGS Guildford Dubai). Opening in August 2021, this exciting new venture will bring the RGS ethos to Dubai, one of the Middle East’s largest and most dynamic cities.

A co-educational school with capacity for 2,100 students aged 3 to 18, RGS Guildford Dubai will blend the RGS values of scholarship and community with the vibrancy of Dubai, offering an exceptional educational experience where academia is only one facet of a far richer experience and an extraordinary array of opportunities. 

This leadership position will suit an experienced and innovative professional with a proven track record within a sales and marketing context. The appointee will possess excellent leadership and relationship-building skills as well as the cultural awareness and commercial mindset to operate within a start up context in Dubai. Excellent communication skills with the charisma to act as a compelling ambassador for this new school are crucial.

Experience of working within education is not essential. The role would also suit individuals with similar commercial sales and marketing experience gained in other sectors, but who have an instinctive feel for the competitive schools market in Dubai and can demonstrate a genuine resonance with the RGS values. 

The Royal Grammar School, Guildford and Cognita are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers.
