Employment Opportunities

When filling staff vacancies at Cobham Hall, we look for talented, motivated staff who have a passion for working with young people.

We currently have a vacancy for:

Language Assistant: French

French Language Assistant

We require an enthusiastic native French speaker to work as a Language Assistant in our busy, international Languages Faculty. 

Language Assistants support the work of the Languages Faculty under the supervision of the Modern Languages teachers and the Head of Faculty. They may do this in whole class situations or independently with small groups of pupils.  The role involves improving students' communication skills (in particular oral skills) and developing their knowledge of the society and culture of the target language.  Assistants also help out with the Faculty’s after-school club once a week.

No special qualifications are required, but it is key that applicants have a passion for language acquisition.  Some experience of working with young people is desirable, but not essential.  Candidates wishing to stay for both a whole year or for shorter durations (eg one term) will be considered.

This position is unpaid, but the School offers free, full-board, on-site accommodation in a flat shared with other language assistants.

Minimum Age:  18

Working Hours: Approximately 15 hrs per week over three days per week, term time only, from beginning September to end of June. Cobham Hall School operates a two-week timetable, so working days may vary across the fortnight.  However, every effort will be made to provide assistants with a fair distribution of working days across the week.
