International Teaching Seminars (ITS) is a leading organisation in delivering personal and professional development training & learning opportunities in the field of human behaviour and performance excellence. This is the 30th anniversary of ITS and we have always been run by a small, committed team of individuals who take great pride in continuing to see the organisation thrive.

You will support the business across a wide range of areas as outlined below. Longer term we hope you will contribute to the growth of the team, and indeed experience your own individual growth.

Primarily, this role is to support digital marketing objectives of the business (increased traffic, increased engagement, increased conversion, increased brand awareness), which in turn support our sales objectives (getting bottoms on seats at our events).

As such, solid communication skills are a must. Decision-making around priorities and what to handle in-house versus what to outsource will be an important part of your role.
