HEAD OF COMMUNICATION - BUDAPEST based, full- or part-time

We are looking for someone whose English writing is impeccable, bold, edgy and funny. Your verbal style can be completely different, we don’t mind. You DO NOT have to hold a degree in English, literature, English literature, writing, reading or computer science for that matter. You just have to blow our minds with your written communication.

You of course will also have an appreciation for brave and beautiful visuals, so that you can lead our graphic designer to create impactful messages. If on top of this you care about education innovation, get PR, and have experience in online marketing, then you definitely belong in our tribe.

Why? Because we are building the school for kids who will change the world. And we need to get our message out to attract the right kind of families, partners and sponsors. Those who resonate with our mission, values and personalities. This is where you come in.

If you recognise yourself above, please follow the steps below. We’d like to ask you to do one short exercise:

  1. Research our website: www.realschool.eu. Thoroughly. It’s all there.
  2. Write a brief email to our school community about some good news
  3. Write another brief email to the same community, this time about some bad news (e.g. we need to cancel a camp, somebody broke their arm, we didn’t get a grant we applied for so we won’t build the student kitchen, etc.

Please click APPLY FOR THIS JOB NOW and upload the two brief letters as per above, a cover note, and your CV, LinkedIn or portfolio site. If we are blown away, we will contact you immediately. If not, we will contact you anyway (we are quite polite people).
