Job Description

We are seeking a Graduate Boarding Assistant to support and assist with the smooth running of the Boarding House.

Boarding in the vibrant and cosmopolitan university city of Bristol offers many diverse opportunities for activities out of school including voluntary and community work, membership of sports, music and drama clubs, competitions and academic enrichment.

Hours: This is a full-time role to be worked during term time plus 15 days during the holiday period. This is a temporary position.

During the week, the Graduate Boarding Assistant will be entitled to be off duty for the equivalent of 48 hours, which includes a night when she may be away from School and away from the House.

The timetabling of time off will be subject to the constraints of other staff’s teaching or school commitments. At weekends, time off will be according to the rota agreed each week across the Houses to ensure all duties and activities are staffed.

The school normally has a half term holiday of a fortnight in October, a week at the end of May, and a week in February. Dates of half term are published in the school calendar and these should be noted carefully. The main school holidays are Easter (3 weeks), Summer (7 weeks) and Christmas (3 weeks).

Holidays may be arranged only during official school holidays. It is not possible to take alternative holidays in term time.

Salary: The actual salary is £21,288 (FTE £26,055).

We welcome female applicants only as this is a girls’ boarding school. This is a genuine occupational requirement in accordance with schedule 9, part 1 of the Equality Act.

Additional Benefits: Free accommodation, free onsite parking, free meals, pension membership and free gym membership are all included.

Starting date: September 2024 (or there is a vacancy to start April 2024).

Closing date: Monday 8th January 2024 at 9.00 am.

Interview date: Tuesday 23rd January 2024.

Suitable candidates may be interviewed before the closing date and the School reserves the right to withdraw the position if an early appointment is made. Applicants are therefore encouraged to apply early. 

Badminton School has an inclusive culture that promotes, values and celebrates the diverse voice of our community. We have a strong commitment as an equal opportunities employer and encourage applications from all candidates.


The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
