Head of Residential and Welfare
This position is fully residential. It is a fundamental role for the success of the Summer School, and the post-holder works closely with the Camp Manager, on all points.
The Head of Residential & Welfare (HoRW) will be the team lead for all residential staff and is responsible for ensuring that every aspect of the residential element of the Summer School runs smoothly. This includes, but is not limited to, laundry, overnights and emergency calls.
The post-holder is tasked with ensuring that, day by day, all the Residential Assistants know what their plans are for the day and have sufficient information and resources to ensure the evening activities run successfully.
This is a key position for the smooth running of the Summer School. 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.
This role will have direct reports from the residential department. The postholder will be responsible for the running of the residential department, which includes meeting and greeting students, as well as ensuring students are ready for departure.
