Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Permanent

Elstree School seeks to appoint a committed and caring individual for the position of School Nurse. The appointment will be from October 2019, or sooner, and is an exciting opportunity to work within a dynamic, highly successful boarding and day school situated in 150 acres of beautiful parkland in rural West Berkshire. Elstree makes for an idyllic place for children to be nurtured and inspired.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the writing and maintenance of medical protocols and school health policies, conducting surgeries, and will also have a clear understanding of pastoral care provision.  Flexibility, resilience and empathy are essential requirements along with a caring and cheerful disposition.  The working hours are term time only but require some flexibility and will include some on-call overnight medical care.

The position is permanent and whilst experience of working in a school environment is desirable, it is not essential.  The School Nurse will ideally be resident in the boarding house during term time, although a non-residential role would be considered for the right candidate
