Paramedic/Nurse for Cover - full days or half days

We are looking for experienced Paramedics, Nurses or other Healthcare professionals to provide cover for staff absence at short notice. Successful candidates will be able to step in seamlessly to work as part of a small on-site Medical and Welfare team, as well as independently, in order to provide outstanding first aid and medical treatment to our pupils and staff throughout the school day.

He/she should be organised, able to work under pressure, able to communicate clearly and be computer literate (a knowledge of SIMS would be advantageous).  A strong understanding of Child Protection issues and best practice is essential. School nursing experience would be an advantage, as would experience in paedriatric nursing, adolescent health and/or A&E. A First Aid at Work Certificate will be required. We are pleased to consider applications from a variety of suitably qualified medical professionals, such as registered Nurses, Associate Nurses, or Healthcare professionals. A RSCN, RN-Child or RGN qualification is not required for this role. Of paramount importance is a friendly, approachable personality; excellent communication skills; and an ability to work independently with confidence.

The standard working hours of the Medical and Welfare Team are between 08:00 and 17:00 on days when pupils are present. Cover tends to be required from 08:30 to 16:30 but half days can be considered. Additional work could be available, by mutual agreement, at the weekend and outside regular term times for extra-curricular activities, sporting fixtures and school trips.

School lunches are provided during term time.
