Wellbeing Assistant

HaileyburyHertfordshire

Haileybury is committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing needs of all pupils, and staff members, so that they can thrive in our community and beyond. The opening of a dedicated Wellbeing Centre in September 2021, which will also house the school’s Counselling Service, is testament to this commitment.

The role of the Wellbeing Assistant is a new and exciting opportunity for someone with a keen interest in youth mental health and wellbeing. The primary responsibility of the postholder will be to support the delivery of our programme of wellbeing activities, within and beyond the Wellbeing Centre. This post will suit a new graduate, with an interest in pursuing a teaching career, or working in youth services, social care, counselling or similar.

The successful candidate will work primarily within the Wellbeing Centre supervising and running activities, and supporting pupils who visit the centre; and they will also be encouraged to contribute to the programme of assemblies, tutorials and PHSE lessons focusing on strategies for promoting positive mental health.  Under the direction of the Wellbeing Centre Manager they will help to oversee the day to day running of the Centre which will house counselling rooms, common room space, a dedicated kitchen/cooking facility and a wellbeing garden.

The post holder will be required to work evenings and weekends as directed by the Deputy Head (Safeguarding and Wellbeing), throughout Term Time. Core working hours fall between 8.00 am and 6.00 pm and as required by management. The nature of a 24 hour a day, 7 days per week boarding school require staff to work flexibly and as the School is used by pupils at weekends, which are also the time most parents visit the School, there will be a requirement for the job holder to work early mornings, evenings and weekends.
