Unifrog’s mission

We’re on a mission to level the playing field when it comes to young people finding and applying for their next step after school. We’re achieving this by bringing all the available information into one single, impartial, user-friendly platform that helps students to make the best choices, and submit the strongest applications. We also empower teachers and counsellors to manage the progression process effectively.

Our outlook is global – we work with schools and universities all over the world, from the US to New Zealand, and from Italy to Hong Kong. We want to make it so that young people can compare every opportunity taught in English, wherever it is in the world, and have all the support they need to make successful applications.

We have a clear social purpose, and we’re hugely ambitious. We already work with over half of UK secondary schools, and hundreds of international schools. We are growing rapidly in terms of the number of our customers, in terms of how much they use our platform, and in terms of the breadth of products we offer (check out this video to hear more about the Unifrog platform).

Our team is at the heart of our business and is integral to our success. We work hard to foster a culture of openness, happiness and innovation, and we commit to helping every individual learn and grow so that they can reach their full potential. We want to hire talented people, whatever their background. If you are excited by our mission and are ready to work hard, please don’t hesitate to apply. We look forward to hearing from you!

We believe in the power of diversity. If you are from an ethnic minority background, we would like to strongly encourage you to apply. In advance of applying, if you have any questions about working at Unifrog, please contact our People and EDI Lead, Jo (details on our website).

The role and your key responsibilities

As Marketing Lead, you’ll head up the marketing to our Employer and Higher Education (HE) audiences – from crafting compelling email campaigns to growing our audience on LinkedIn. Employers and HE are our two newest audiences, and you’ll play a key role in driving their increased engagement and growth, ultimately helping us to support as many students as possible to make informed decisions about their next steps.

This is a diverse role that we expect to evolve, depending on your strengths and interests. We always look to make space for our team members to grow with the company, and we have a strong track record of promoting from within.

Your key responsibilities:

  • Marketing strategy and planning
    • Work with the Head of Marketing to set the marketing strategy for our employer and HE audiences, including understanding our customer personas, setting objectives, and identifying priorities for the year.
    • Execute the strategy and lead on the creation and delivery of all comms to these two new audiences.
    • Lead on the development and promotion of thought leadership content for our employer and HE audiences.

    • Write engaging event descriptions, create and send promotional comms, and send conversion and follow-up emails.
    • Provide on-the-day support to the Events team for bigger events, such as our in-person conferences.

Inclusion and diversity at Unifrog

  • Within the company we try to foster a culture of innovation, and a happy working environment, both because this is the right thing to do, and because we think this results in the most effective team. To this end we believe in open communication, celebrating successes, supporting each other, not being afraid to be wrong or to fail, and promoting good ideas wherever they come from.
  • As a platform that supports teachers and students from a huge variety of backgrounds it’s important that our team and leadership reflects this diversity. This is something we are actively working towards and prioritising. We want to embed diversity, equity and inclusion across everything we do, continually evaluating policies and practices to make sure they are inclusive and equitable.
  • To make sure everyone’s voice is heard and people have the opportunities to learn to be better allies in the workplace, we encourage the team to share what they’re celebrating, facilitate training and group discussions, and seek regular feedback about what more the company could do to help people feel included.
  • To ensure that our recruitment process is consistent and fair, we anonymise your application and therefore do not see your name, personal, educational or professional background. We also randomise the order of responses so that it’s less likely that a candidate is advantaged or disadvantaged by where their answers appear compared to other candidates.
