Residential Boarding House Matron - Chichester, West Sussex
Required for September 2022
Competitive Salary + Accommodation
Our client is an independent preparatory school situated just to the east of Chichester in beautiful grounds of over 100 acres. There are approximately 380 boys and girls, aged 2½ -13. Most children go on to major Public Schools across the South.
They have an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and friendly person to join their vibrant residential boarding team. Would you relish the opportunity of working with young children (aged 7-13) in their Main Boarding House? If you have experience of working as a matron, nurse, social care worker, or similar profession, this position offers an exciting opportunity to play a key role in ensuring the care of their pupils. The successful candidate will have a warm and welcoming presence in the boarding house and be a helpful and caring team member who would enjoy working and living in their School community.
They are looking for someone with a very positive "can-do" practical approach to support their full, weekly and flexi boarders throughout the weekdays and at weekends. Numbers vary from 10 to 70 boarders. You will need to be fit and agile for laundry and bed changing duties.
You will need to be practical, patient, sensitive, as well as an excellent communicator and a team player.  Previous experience of working with young people would be an advantage but not essential.
Accommodation will be provided all year round and the term-time only position will commence in September 2022.  The School creates a safe, supportive and fun boarding environment for children to help them develop into caring, self-reliant and confident individuals.
They can offer:
- Strong, supportive staff team
- Competitive salary
- Pension Scheme
- Use of the school's facilities
- Employee Assistance Programme
