Maternity Cover

St Edmund’s College is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed Business Studies teacher.

Economics and Business Studies are both popular options and the Business and Economics Department is well resourced and has an excellent record of student achievement in public examinations.

The role also offers many opportunities to contribute to the lively extra-curricular life of the College, which is situated in beautiful grounds in rural East Hertfordshire.
