Medical Response Officer

Saint Gregory's Catholic CollegeBath and North East Somerset

Our students are amazing. They are clever, kind and a joy to work with. They inspire, challenge and drive us as professionals to deliver the highest standards of education and care; to fill their school life with academic rigour, compassion and laughter. School is a busy and varied place of work (definitely not your normal 9-5!) but, as a team, we work together to reach out, find solutions and truly make a difference in the lives of young people.

We are seeking an exceptional colleague to join us as our Medical Response Officer, providing care and support to our school community and being the first point of contact for illness or incident, as well as overseeing the administration of prescribed medicines for students. You will also play a key role in the planning and provision of COVID-19 protection measures, including Lateral Flow Testing, helping to ensure that our school community can be as safe as it possibly can be.

Normal working hours will be 8.30am – 3.30pm, Monday to Friday, however some flexibility may be needed initially to facilitate LFT testing before the school day, if required.

We need a calm, sensitive and committed individual who is excited by the prospect of joining our team and taking on this highly rewarding and valued role within our school community.

Applicants must have a minimum of five GCSE (or equivalent) passes at Grade C or above including English and Mathematics and hold a First Aid qualification. Equally as important, however, are the ‘softer’ skills needed to support and care for students and staff in a calm and positive manner, as well as exemplary credentials in administrative and organisational tasks.

You do not need to have worked in an educational setting before but a desire to work with and support young people is essential. We welcome applications from experienced professionals seeking a new career challenge in an outstanding school.

Why you should join Saint Gregory's:

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable place in the world and the contribution that you bring to our school deserves its own rewards. As a member of our team, you can expect:

• Outstanding professional support to help you develop your career

• A vibrant and dynamic student body that deserves the very best in teaching and support

• A rewarding and dynamic job role making a real, lasting and positive impact

• A positive and innovative learning culture where well-being and workload are effectively managed

• Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme

For an open conversation about the role please contact the HR Manager, Miss Jackson by email hr@st-gregorys.org.uk to arrange a suitable time.

We are an equal opportunities employer and are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We follow safer recruitment practices and appointments are subject to an enhanced DBS check prior of employment.
