Collège Alpin Beau Soleil SASwitzerland

Date posted:
Start date: September 2020
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Permanent

Are you a passionate and caring boarding professional looking for a fantastic opportunity to develop their career in a successful and expanding school? College Alpin Beau Soleil is looking for outstanding individuals who are committed to providing the highest levels of support and pastoral welfare for all the students in their care.

As a Housemaster/Housemistress at Beau Soleil, you will play a key part in our ongoing drive to raise the quality of everything we do. Together we ensure that our students enjoy an extraordinary holistic education in the exceptional alpine setting of Villars-sur-Ollon.

Our Housemasters/Housemistresses provide the link between students, parents and the academic side of the school. They lead the way in creating and maintaining a home from home family environment in which students feel secure and well supported throughout their time at Beau Soleil. Working under the direction of the Director of Boarding, you will have responsibility for the all-round welfare and success of the young people in your boarding house.

Working closely with your in-house team (Deputy Housemaster/Housemistress and Graduate Assistants) and liaising daily with tutors, academic leaders, medical centre and the school’s leadership team, your support will enable the students in your boarding house to thrive and fulfil their potential in all areas of their life at Beau Soleil. Housemasters/Housemistresses teach a reduced number of lessons as part of our academic curriculum.

We value shared involvement with all areas of life in school. As a successful part of the Beau Soleil team, you will want to join in with the wider programming, supporting students outside their comfort zone and helping them to develop as people. Opportunities abound for travel through the 45+ trips we run each year, and to be involved with the winter and summer activities programme: in and out of school, on or off the mountain, winter or summer. Passion is infectious, so we are looking for people who can help spark fires in the minds of young people.

In return for your drive and enthusiasm to deliver the highest quality all-round boarding education you will enjoy a competitive salary, and places in the school for your secondary age children if you wish. You will also have the opportunity to live in and work in the stunningly beautiful Swiss Alpine ski resort of Villars-sur-ollon.

Here at Beau Soleil, we are a close knit team who are proud of our school and boarding community. We educate 260 young people from nearly 60 countries, preparing them for futures as impactful global citizens. If you’d like to be a part of our on-going success, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
