Work experience opportunity for School Leavers, Undergraduates and Graduates
Term time only
Godstowe seeks to appoint enthusiastic and efficient Assistants to join the boarding staff team. Godstowe has a vibrant boarding community of over 100 girls in three boarding houses. The girls are aged between 7 to 13 years. Most of them board full-time, going home only at Exeat weekends and during School holidays. We also have part-time and ad-hoc boarders enjoying life in School outside the classroom. The girls are from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, reflecting the School’s international outlook and spirit.
These are term-time only but full-time roles, with some weekend and evening work included in the weekly rota. Typically, boarding house staff have plenty of free time during the School day, enabling many of our staff to pursue further studies. Holidays are generous and as part of the remuneration, we offer single room accommodation in the Boarding House, some with en-suite facilities, and use of the Boarding House kitchen. All residential staff enjoy free meals during term-time. Salary is paid monthly.
The role presents an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to immerse herself in the environment of an outstanding educational institution. Although the position is initially fixed term for a minimum of three months and a maximum of one year (at the candidate’s choice), the School will consider extending the arrangement for the right candidate.
Candidates must have a good general standard of education (A-level or equivalent). We would also welcome Graduates or Undergraduates seeking work experience or a work placement. If you have a professional outlook, and a can-do attitude coupled with a good sense of humour, as well as a caring and supportive personality, we would welcome your application.
Previous experience of having looked after children will be an advantage. Full training will be given in all aspects of the safeguarding of children, health & safety and our I.T. systems.
Godstowe School has extensive COVID-19 safety measures in place, including daily COVID testing for all boarders and boarding staff.
