Information About The Post

We are looking for a Day Houseparent to work Monday to Wednesday, mainly term time only. You will be responsible for the wellbeing, safety and behaviour of students in one of our two boarding houses. Duties include clerical work, managing the cleaning staff and liaising with contacts both within and outside the College. It is a very rewarding role which requires empathy with the needs of young people, a confident manner and good organisational skills. These personal qualities are most important and it is not necessary to have experience working with young people although it would be an advantage. 

We are dedicated to safeguarding the students in our care. To that end, a Disclosure and Barring Service enhanced disclosure will be required in the event of an individual being offered a position within our College. Our staff undertake regular safeguarding training and are subject to ongoing safeguarding scrutiny.
