An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Marketing Manager to join our Commercial Services Team.

In this role, you’ll be responsible for generating commercial marketing strategy working closely with our central marketing teams, all social media platforms within Commercial Services and accommodation sales platforms.

A recently appointed member of staff said “it was inspiring coming into an organisation where staff have been working for significant lengths of time, which means OBU must be doing something right! 12 weeks down the line and I understand why – the people and my induction. Every person I have been in contact with has not only gone out of their way to help me, but made me feel like a valued member of the team and for that I am thankful.  I am looking forward to hopefully a very long career with Brookes.“
