Details of Position

All members of staff employed by SBC will be expected to bring certain key qualities to the operation. Generally, there must be a real interest in working with children and in particular a strong empathy for working with international children. We look for staff to understand the responsibilities involved with residential positions and therefore be enthusiastic, approachable, supportive, diplomatic and importantly, flexible.

The management positions available at our Oxford College are:

The Office Coordinator is responsible for all the behind the scenes administration necessary for the smooth running of the college. This includes, but it not limited to, all on-site financial record keeping, preparation of cultural and academic excursions, supporting the Head Office with HR administration on-site, overseeing all student arrival and departure administration, monitoring and maintaining office & IT stock and ensuring the office is a vibrant, clean & organised work space throughout the summer. Strong communication, organisational and administration skills are essential, alongside the ability to work flexibly and under pressure.

The College Social Programme is made up of three key areas: morning & afternoon wellbeing activities, evening events & excursions. The Social Programme Coordinator has overall responsibility for two of these areas, the wellbeing programme & evening events. The importance of the Social Programme at a residential summer school cannot be underestimated. A successful Social Programme can help foster a positive atmosphere at the school, which is crucial in helping students form friendships & simply have a great time. The Social Programme Coordinator will manage a team of College Mentors to deliver a vibrant, high-quality and smoothly-run programme of activities and events. A high level of communication, delegation and organisational skills is essential, as is experience working with, and supporting young people.

The Welfare Coordinator will liaise with staff and the Oxford College Principal through daily meetings, communicating with parents over issues of welfare, take a key role at all meal times, and look after all issues of student welfare including offsite medical appointments, and general support in the summer school office.


Proven previous experience of working in a residential UK summer school is essential.

Applicants with experience of the behind the scenes administration of a residential course will be greatly preferred.

Salary and Benefits

All Managers will need to attend management training near our Head Office in Leeds for 3 days in June.

Depending on the school, the contract dates vary from either 1st/2nd July 2019 until 5th/19th August 2019.

Salary is from £600* per week (including holiday allowance at 12.07% of basic pay), plus board and accommodation at the school.
