Trident College is located on a 113-hectare nature reserve in Solwezi, Zambia. The school opened its doors to the first pioneering group of pupils and parents in September 2013. In addition to serving the educational needs of the local copper mining community, the College, which is now home to over 280 pupils, is rapidly becoming the boarding school of choice in Zambia and a firm option for parents and pupils throughout southern Africa.
Our successful applicant will be a mature female who can provide a motherly figure to 60 boys from 13 to 18 years old. This role requires someone who is caring and has a passion for working with young people.
Boarding house matrons are key members of the boarding house team and are primary personnel in the welfare of Trident students. Boarding Matrons work closely with the rest of the house team, the Boarding Manager and the Head of house.
Key personal skills Matrons will need are the ability to exert authority, command respect, provide boundaries, intuitively assess student well-being, and provide physical and mental support to all boys as the need arises.
Daily duties include, but are not limited to, ensuring that all boys are well, organised, and happy, assisting with the laundry process, supervising the cleaning team in-house, attending the clinic with ill students on rotation basis including night bedside stays as required.
