We are seeking a qualified registered nurse, with current and valid nursing license to work part-time across a 2day week. Paediatric nursing, A&E and school clinic experience is preferable but not compulsory. Possession of a recognised valid first-aid certificate is also an advantage.

The British International School Riyadh (BISR) is an extremely well-regarded not-for-profit, co-educational school in the Middle East, catering for students aged 3-18 across its existing five campuses, providing high quality education to the expatriate community since 1979. The school is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and as a British School Overseas (BSO). BISR is also a member of the British Schools of the Middle East (BSME) and the Council of British International Schools (COBIS). Learning is holistic, supported by a broad co-curricular programme, encompassing extra-curricular activities, student leadership, service learning and residential trips. Strong pastoral care supports student well-being. 


We are seeking a qualified registered nurse, with a current and valid nursing license to work part-time across a 2-day week. Paediatric nursing, A&E and school clinic experience is preferable but not compulsory. Possession of a recognised valid first-aid certificate is also an added advantage. Standard working hours will normally be from 7:45am to 4pm, 5 days a week – Sunday to Thursday during term time, however, due to the nature of the role and work requirements within the School Clinic, this means a high level of flexibility and commitment is required, often working outside of the standard hours, with some work activities requiring completion during the School holidays.
