Graduate Gap Staff

Closing Date: 31 May 2024
Telephone: 01483 893 363
Salary: St Catherine's Salary Scale
Employment Term: Full TimeTemporary

We seek to appoint two Graduate Gap Staff members from September 2024 to July 2025 who will be resident in self-contained staff accommodation in one of the boarding houses and therefore members of the larger Resident Staff Team made up also of teachers.  The role of the Graduate Gap Staff is to provide support for the day-to-day running of the St Catherine’s Senior and Prep schools across various departments.

The successful applicants will work at times alongside the School Leaver Gap students, lending some leadership within that team and mentoring the younger Gaps, and will at other times perform duties more suited to their greater maturity and graduate qualifications, including being a member of the Resident Staff Team for boarding house supervision duties as well as having some opportunities to experience school life in areas of particular interest to the applicant.  Examples might be a specific academic subject or extra-curricular area such as Drama, Sport, Music etc.  The post would suit a graduate considering a career in teaching/education and wanting to find out more about schools from the teacher perspective before committing to teacher training.

Remuneration for the role and accommodation on site in a school house are part of the package.

Further details and an application form are available from or by email from the HR Administrator on


Applications will be assessed in order of receipt and interviews may occur at any stage after applications are received.  Please apply as soon as possible.  We will consider applications when they come in and would hope to have made an appointment by mid May.
