We are seeking 2 self-motivated, friendly and approachable individuals to join us as Resident House Assistants. One post is at White Lodge in Richmond, supporting the 11-16 year old boarders and another is available in Aud Jebsen Hall Pimlico, working with our 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students (16-19). The successful candidate will have pastoral experience in a 16+, coeducational boarding environment. The role involves ensuring that students have a secure and supportive ‘home from home’ during term time. They will also fulfil a role in support of the pastoral and broader life of the school.

Hours: Full-time with two evenings per week and three weekends per term (plus exeats) off duty

(although staff may be called upon in an emergency). For clarity the working week runs from Sunday evening until Friday and the weekend constitutes Saturday. This situation reflects current working rotas, however flexibility is required on occasion as these may have to be adapted to meet operational requirements.

Holidays: House staff must be resident during term time (even on nights off), in case of emergency but may ask permission from the APPW for occasional absences for special occasions. No holiday may be taken during term time, the last week of the summer break or when there is planned Inset. This role will be required to cover a one week Spring Intensive Course during the Easter holidays.
