Support staff positions

 

Senior Nurse

  • School Health Centre, up to 34 hours per week, term time, inclusive of Saturdays (with a day off in lieu during the week)
  • Start date: Wednesday 24 April 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter
  • Live-in or live out, accommodation available
  • Salary by negotiation, dependent upon skills and experience

We are looking to appoint an experienced School Nurse to join and manage our medical team, for up to 34 hours per week, term time only, on a flexible rota. There is also a requirement to work for three days immediately prior to the start of a new term and three days at the start of each school holiday period. If “live-in”, there will be a requirement to be part of night-time medical on-call and sleep-in rotas, along with other Boarding House staff. 

Experience of dealing with young children and with a keen interest in health care promotion is essential to this role. Previous experience of working in A&E, with minor injuries or in a school environment would be an advantage and candidates should be confident working independently and as part of a team, as the school nurses play a vital role in the healthcare of all members of the school community.
