Closing date
6 May 2024


We are looking for a creative, capable and experienced account manager to play a central role in running our education partnership programmes. We are proud of the impact our school programmes have on young people, so we want someone with the same passion for the youth/education sector. The successful candidate will be confident in digital marketing, online events, video and the latest social media trends.

The Day covers the most important and interesting news stories on the planet (and beyond) every weekday and adapts them for children from the age of 18 right down to age 7. As a subscription-based, online resource for schools, our primary audience is teachers. The Day partners with brands, companies and other organisations to link the real world to the curriculum, creating innovative learning resources and experiences for schools and colleges.

The successful candidate will manage and drive forward our key strategic partners (including Oxford University and the LEGO Group) to deliver learning programmes for young people and teacher-facing marketing campaigns. There is a strong digital marketing and online events element to this role, and the need for creative and strategic thinking.

You will also be responsible for overseeing the management, growth and promotion of The Day’s exciting Global Young Journalist Awards. You will report into the Partnerships & Audience Director and be supported by our Partnerships Marketing Executive, to manage project timelines, plan and promote online events, videos and learning resources, create social media strategies and deliver above and beyond the expectations of our clients. You will be required to assist the Exec and become hands-on when required. We are looking for a self-motivated individual, who is confident dealing with senior stakeholders, has excellent client servicing skills and has a keen eye for detail and KPI’s, taking initiative to pivot where necessary.

The role is 4-5 days per week (with some flexibility), but with four touch points required throughout the week. We all work from home, but meet in London once a month, so this role can be based anywhere within approx 90 minutes travel to London or the ability and willingness to travel once a month to London.

We require a creative person who is capable of working independently, wants to make an impact on a growing company and ideally has knowledge of/a passion for the education sector. We balance this with a strong belief in employee well-being, team-work and openness.
