This is such an exciting opportunity for graduates with an interest in pursuing a career in education to gain experience at one of the country’s top boarding schools. At Benenden we are passionate about education in its broadest sense. Our aim is that every pupil will leave at the end of the Sixth Form full of compassion and confidence to fulfil her ambition, embrace challenge and make a difference.

Our team of Resident Graduate Tutors enjoy being fully involved in the boarding and co-curricular life of the School while also having the opportunity to explore other aspects of School life, including in the classroom.   

Although working in a boarding school involves extended days and working weekends, you will live on-site in shared accommodation enabling you to be fully integrated into our busy, vibrant community. You will also have a day off each week.

If our values resonate with you, we would be delighted if you would consider joining our boarding and co-curricular team. Benenden offers its own generous pay structure, responsibility allowances and benefits. Staff are provided with meals whilst on duty, catering for all tastes and dietary requirements. The School’s leisure facilities, including wonderful grounds, a fitness gym and swimming pool are also available for staff to use.

As an exceptional School, we want to attract, retain, and develop diverse talent at all levels so that our pupils feel and understand the power and depth of a diverse community. This means recruiting from the widest possible pool of talent, removing barriers that can prevent people from showing their full potential, and fostering a fully inclusive environment which maximises collaboration and empowers everyone.
