(Part Time)

Chigwell School is seeking to appoint a 6th Form Boarding House Assistant to join the community of 930 pupils and under 200 staff in the School founded by Archbishop Harsnett in 1629. The School is looking for a support staff member to assist in the boy’s boarding house at weekends. The post would suit a friendly caring person who would enjoy meeting students from all over the world and helping them settle into life at Chigwell. Experience of working with young people and/or bringing up a family is essential. 

The School values very much the contribution of the boarders to the life of the Sixth Form as a whole. Our boarders live in family boarding houses in the school grounds. Each house has just seven or eight students, with a mix of different nationalities, cared for by a houseparent couple who live in the house with the students. It is easy to get to know people in our small friendly boarding houses.

Chigwell School is a leading co-educational school. We are located in the picturesque village of Chigwell just 10 miles from central London but on the edge of Epping Forest, and we enjoy over 100 acres of beautiful grounds.

Closing date: 25th February 2018

Applications will be considered immediately upon receipt and candidates will be contacted by telephone or email to attend an interview if required. The School reserves the right to interview and appoint prior to the closing date.

Chigwell School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening including checks with past employers and DBS.
