Director, Enrollment and Marketing Strategy

Carnegie is seeking an experienced enrollment and/or marketing leader to join its Client Success team. The Director, Enrollment & Marketing Strategy will be at the center of our most complex and exciting partnerships, serving as a high-level strategic resource for our higher education clients,  aligning our services to meet their needs.

This person must possess a deep knowledge of the higher education landscape and today’s enrollment and marketing trends. They must also be a dynamic leader equipped with skills to navigate campus politics while building deep and lasting relationships with clients. At the same time, the Director is critically important to leading integration within Carnegie’s growing internal structure, advocating for clients internally, and acting as the fusion point for our work across divisions to ensure client success, satisfaction, retention, and growth.

A successful Director will quickly master Carnegie’s full portfolio of services across our five divisional teams—Digital Advertising; Research, Modeling, Strategy & Creative; Slate Optimization; Lead Generation; and Web Development. The successful candidate will be comfortable juggling multiple projects and client relationships while also working to build their own thought leadership platform through blogs, webinars, and conference speaking engagements. Top-level communication skills are a must in order to build trust and rapport in a 1:1 environment or command a room on stage in front of hundreds.
