The Opportunity
Approaching its 50th year, Eagle Hill enjoys new and vibrant leadership and a refreshed vision
for its future. The school seeks its first Director of Communications and Marketing to join its
leadership team. Reporting to Gretchen Larkin, Head of School, the successful candidate will
implement an effective communications process designed to clarify messaging to internal and
external audiences, prioritize customer service, streamline workflows across the organization,
refine the school’s brand, and deepen the community’s connection to the school. The Director
will play an essential role in promoting Eagle Hill’s value, mission, and help to shape the longterm vision for the school.


The Candidate
Reporting to the Head of School, the Director of Communications and Marketing will be an
exceptional relationship builder and storyteller who leads with confidence and self-awareness.

demonstrate initiative, leadership, creativity, and empathy. Cheerfully persistent and
entrepreneurial, the Director will be a natural storyteller and persuader while initiating best
practices and processes designed to improve the daily operations of the school. A thought
partner to the Head of School, the Director will provide strategic advice for both emergent and
long-term planning and help to articulate a clear vision and brand identity for Eagle Hill School.
Over time the Director will have the ability to build out a small team, but in the short term, the
successful candidate must be capable of working in a resource-constrained environment and
motivated by the opportunity and autonomy to build something new.
