School Nurse

Registered Nurses/Paramedics – regular bank

St Edmund’s College offers modern facilities in a magnificent country setting in rural Hertfordshire, providing a safe and stimulating environment for young minds.

We require registered nurses or Paramedics to join our friendly health centre team on a regular and ad-hoc bank basis. Shifts will mainly be weekends and sleep in night shifts (room provided), with opportunities to cover our popular summer school during the summer holidays.

Experience in minor illness/injuries or A & E preferred. Successful candidates will take sole responsibility for the health centre whilst on duty, therefore candidates must be confident in lone working and decision making.

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.

The successful candidate will welcome the many opportunities to contribute to the lively extra-curricular life of the College, which is situated in rural East Hertfordshire. 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.
