Communications Manager - Mathematics Mastery
Thank you for your interest in the role of Communications Manager.
Mathematics Mastery is a non-profit organisation, dedicated to transforming mathematics education in the UK. Based on international evidence and practice, our school improvement programme aims to enhance pupils’ understanding, enjoyment, resilience and attainment in mathematics.
Mathematics Mastery was originally established as an Ark UK Programme in 2011 and has grown steadily over the last six years. We now work with over 4,500 teachers from 475 schools, and nearly 140,000 pupils are taught maths lessons designed and developed by us.
This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious, confident and motivated person to join our expanding team. We are looking for someone who combines creative thinking with practical and strategic communications knowhow. You must be able to generate ideas while also having the skills to effectively plan and implement initiatives from start to finish.
The right candidate will have a curious and inquisitive mind – and an insatiable interest in the work of our organisation. A personal interest in maths isn’t essential but an understanding and appreciation of its educational importance is. You will be passionate about driving change, supporting teachers and improving the life chances of young people.
You must have the skills and impetus to ask thoughtful questions and listen to colleagues in the quest to gather information – enabling you to build stories and content. You must also be able to demonstrate your communications expertise – advising colleagues on how we get our key messages across and engage our audiences.
This is a new role so there is huge room to make it your own. The right candidate will be resilient and flexible, and comfortable working in a fast-paced and sometimes uncertain environment – relishing the opportunity this brings for your own development and career.
