The Royal Ballet SchoolCentral London

Date posted:
Start date: September 2019
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: £14733.25 per annum
Contract term: Fixed Term
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

We are seeking a trustworthy, committed and flexible graduate in English, History, Biology, Science, PE, Performing Arts or Dance to be an integral part of the House team in one of our boarding houses in Central London in delivering excellent and compliant pastoral care for the students in Aud Jebsen Hall as well as supporting the academic life of the school. The successful candidate will be responsible for supporting the 1st and 2nd Years ensuring that students have a secure and supportive ‘home from home’ during term time. They will also have a timetable acting as a classroom assistant or supporting students on a one-to-one basis. 

Duration: Fixed Term, September 2019 - July 2020

Hours: Full-time with two evenings off per week. Weekend working involves 15 weekends on duty. This includes 6 fixed week-ends (although staff may be called upon in an emergency). Weekly daytime commitment is in the region of 16 hours - averaged over the term.

Week-end duty includes providing support in artistic classes on a Saturday morning.

Every effort will be made to provide a 24 hour period of non-contact time per week. Where this may not be possible for timetabling reasons, then suitable arrangements for substantial periods of non-contact time will be made. For the avoidance of doubt, the boarding week runs Sunday evening-Friday and the weekend constitutes Saturday. This situation reflects current working rotas, however flexibility may be required on occasion as these may have to be adapted to meet operational requirements.

The Monday to Saturday day-time commitment will be in the region of 16 hours.

There is a possible requirement to provide one week of cover for the Spring Intensive Course during the Easter holidays (additional payment will be made for this cover).

Salary: £14733.25 per annum

Location: Aud Jebsen Hall with regular travel to Covent Garden

Holiday: 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.

Please note that all applicants must complete an application form - CV’s will not be accepted.

Closing Date: 18 April 2019

Interview Date: 26 April 2019

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment. The successful candidates will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring check and further pre-employment checks to comply with boarding school recruitment regulations.
