Registered Nurses / Paramedics

We require registered nurses or paramedics to commit to shifts with our friendly Health Centre team,

(Required for September 2023)

The medical healthcare of our students is of fundamental importance and we therefore invite registered nurses or paramedics to commit to shifts with our friendly Health Centre team, on a contracted basis, committing to specific shifts.

We offer modern facilities in a magnificent country setting in rural Hertfordshire, providing a safe and stimulating environment for young minds.  Benefits of working here include excellent catering facilities (and free meals), use of sports facilities, a discretionary discount on fees for your children, free parking, access to counselling and health advice helplines, a generous pension contribution, Death in Service Policy and a tax saving salary sacrifice scheme.

Our shift system works on a 12-hour basis, Monday to Sunday:  8am to 8pm, for day shifts, and 8pm to 8am for night shifts.    Shifts will be during school term-time only, which means that, during College holidays, you will not be required to work (however, your salary will be paid over 12 months so that, for example, in July and August, you will be paid your salary, regardless of not working).

Our rate of pay for day shifts is calculated at an hourly rate of £19.10

Our rate of pay for sleep-in night shifts is calculated at an hourly rate of £10.50

A room is provided for sleep-in shifts and the likelihood of disturbance is low, and ordinarily, for minor ailments, possibly requiring a paracetamol.  Sleep-in shifts are to accommodate our secondary-school aged pupils, in boarding.

We are particularly keen to cover our weekends and sleep-in night shifts (room provided).

Particular shifts available at present are listed below, though these may change and so all are welcome to apply:

  • 1 Friday night per month
  • 1 Sunday night per month
  • Possibly 1 Wednesday night every fortnight
  • Possibly one weekend per month – Friday night, Saturday day, Saturday night, Sunday day


The post will involve close contact with, and a high degree of responsibility for, children and young adults. The majority of this will be regulated activity.

St Edmund’s is England’s oldest Catholic school offering an all-round co-education for students from 3 to 18 and for families from all faiths.
