This position can be either residential or non-residential. It is a fundamental role for the success of the Summer School. The post-holder will have overall responsibility for the Residential and Activities staff and will work closely with the Business Support Manager on the day-to-day management of all matters relating to the non-academic elements of the Summer School both on and off site.
This role will be varied, challenging and one that calls for professionalism, discretion and the ability to deal with issues in a calm and courteous manner.
The Camp Manager will have the Head of Residential & Welfare (HoRW) and Head of Activities & Excursions (HoAE) reporting directly to them and all residential and activities staff reporting to them indirectly.
The post-holder will also take responsibility of team lead for all residential and activities staff in the absence of the HoRW and HoAE and ensure every aspect of these core elements of the Summer School run smoothly at all times both on and off site. This includes, but is not limited to, laundry, overnights, and emergency calls.
Students will engage directly with the post-holder, so it is very important that you feel comfortable working with Summer School participants ranging in age from 8-17 years. We are looking to fill this post with someone who is confident as a leader and has empathy with learners. The post-holder must have a full understanding of the requirements for Child Protection and Safeguarding, knowing and understanding the distance that staff and students must maintain is crucial to this role. There cannot be any social media contact or any behaviour that contravenes our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy. Ideally, we are looking to recruit a member of staff that will join us again for future Summer Schools.
