Simon Pride

Head of Student Recruitment and Marketing - Arts University Bournemouth

I began my career in advertising, joining J Walter Thompson as a graduate trainee. After 20 odd years in agencies, mainly in London and Amsterdam, I was looking for a new challenge and a renewed sense of purpose, which I found in HE marketing. After 5 years as Head of Marcomms at Arts University Bournemouth (AUB), I spent 3 years as a Director at Harper Adams University. In 2019 I returned to AUB and am super proud that in a pandemic my team won 2021 HEIST awards for Mktg Team of the Year, a Rising Star award (our Senior Digital Officer, Charlotte MacKay) and our new website. A passionate believer in innovation as a driver of both impact and engagement, the AUB 2022 prospectus is being delivered exclusively on Instagram (@aub_prospectus).
