Actual starting salary: £22,901 per annum

The main purpose of the House Parent role is to support both boys and other boarding staff within the houses on a day to day basis, whilst also take a leading role in the day to day management of the boarding house and individual support required for all boys within the house.

The support provided can come in many different forms from guiding boys with academic work and any concerns they may have, to supporting them with their organisation and social development and awareness as any parent would. No one day is the same working within a boarding house, and this is one of the main reasons the role requires someone who is both flexible and able to adapt to the individual needs of boys on a day to day basis.

A personable approach is key, with the ability to spend time with boys in a social environment getting to know them and being comfortable in their company being at the top of the list.

We are looking for an outstanding individual to ensure the wellbeing of all the boys is at the heart of what we do, and to be part of a successful team.

Our employees benefit from a generous local government pension scheme plus an

Employee Rewards scheme – High Street discounts, Staff Wellbeing centre
