Open Colleges has been delivering quality education for over 100 years. During this time, we have honed our unique learning model to become Australia’s leader in online learning. We’ve achieved this by continuously evolving our approach to meet the needs of our learners by offering flexible, accessible, supportive, and affordable education.
We’re dedicated to putting the student at the centre of everything we do and have helped over 700,000 people gain the skills to launch, change or take the next step in their careers.
Our team includes over 400 staff and 300 contract educators. Over the last three years, we have been through a fundamental organisational transformation.
Open Colleges is Australia’s leading provider of online education and have experienced huge growth over the past number of years. One of the key drivers of this growth has been their ability to build a world class marketing function who are all digital natives. We are now one of the leaders within the digital space; one of the few global clients to have attended Facebook and Google Adwords summits in Menlo Park and Mountain View over the past 4 years and are a partner of choice for beta launches within the APAC region. We pride ourselves on a test and learn culture, and continue to explore the possibilities of all facets of digital – including measurement, campaign execution, customer activation and engagement.
We are now seeking a Head of Search to help us continue to strategically build upon our high performing digital acquisition strategy. The Head of Search should have a proven track record of leading teams, collaborating and educating cross-departments. The role requires someone who can provide thought leadership from a high level, but also jump into the weeds day-to-day to assist the current close-knit team, continuing to train them and leading by example. You should be well-versed in SEM and SEO, maintaining a deep understanding of planning and technology and should be familiar with current trends across digital measurement, and data & analytics should be part of their DNA.
The Head of Search will be responsible for Open Colleges’ lead acquisition strategy, building trusted and influential relationships with existing and new vendors and internal teams whilst effectively developing and supporting the Acquisition team day to day.
