Delivery Notes

ARU are seeking to appoint two media buying agencies to work alongside the Marketing & Brand team to deliver high impact media campaigns that cut through the crowded HE marketplace and resonate with our prospects. The University tends to run ‘always on’ media campaigns in line with the student recruitment cycle, supplemented by bursts of campaign activity at key points in the cycle, including to support Open Days, the UCAS January deadline and the Clearing period. The central Corporate Marketing team is responsible for the attraction and conversion of UK, European (EU) and International students to the full range of UG and PG courses in the four Faculties. Alongside the central campaigns there will also be bespoke campaigns to be developed on behalf of Faculties and other departments in the university
