Job Summary 

This is a really exciting opportunity to step into a Senior level marketing role at Exco level within one of South Africa’s pre-eminent marketing and advertising schools and really make it your own. 

The Red & Yellow Brand is well-loved and well-known within the South African marketing and advertising community and following its recent acquisition by Honoris United Universities (the first and largest pan-African university network), it is now set to radically ramp up its presence and activity within South Africa and expand through the Honoris network across the continent. 

You will be responsible for the overall Marketing team as well as marketing and communication efforts and brand image across Red & Yellow (including its Full Time, Online and Corporate offerings), with priority focuses on the growing demands and leads for our on-campus programmes as well as radically ramping up lead generation and enrolments for our online short courses and qualifications, and taking the Red & Yellow brand from a strong but relatively niche brand into a digitally-driven powerhouse of creative business education across Africa. 

While Red & Yellow’s legacy and brand is strongly rooted in its Cape Town campus, market and product growth will increasingly – and primarily – be driven through online channels as the company, through its programmes, products, structures and culture, adopts a “digital-first” philosophy.
