Marketing Manager (Full Time)
Marketing at Toronto Waldorf School
We are in an exciting new phase in the life of the school – we have a good brand, new materials and a highly functional website. We are now looking to leverage this strong foundation in public relations strategies, online and innovative advertising, and in building relationships with local community partners. We are looking for a highly motivated individual with experience in Marketing and a passion for Waldorf education who is willing to lead this work in a collaborative setting with the Development and Admissions offices, and the whole Faculty and Staff.

This role is responsible for the overall Marketing strategy development and implementation, brand management, and all communication about our school to the public, prospective parents, and current parents. This includes oversight of the production of the weekly e-newsletter. The Marketing Manager is responsible for the TWS website, including working with contract support and our web vendor; all advertising and media coordination and planning, supporting the work to present ourselves at Open Houses and other in-house events; and collaborating with AWSNA and Waldorf schools across Canada to coordinate marketing/advertising efforts.
The Marketing Plan is developed in collaboration with the Admissions Coordinator, Development Director, and Administrative Director. The Marketing Manager will present the annual Marketing Plan to the Board in the spring for the following year, and report regularly on the progress and results, and return on investment. A more detailed review and follow-up on the plan happens with the Administrative Director (to whom this position reports) on a monthly basis or as needed.
