The Nightingale-Bamford School is seeking to hire a security officer who is responsible for providing safety and security services to students, faculty, staff, and visitors at the Nightingale-Bamford School, a K–12 independent girls’ school in Manhattan.

This position reports to the Director of Safety and Security. This is an exempt position.
The schedule is based on a 40-hour work week. The security officer’s actual work hours will be scheduled according to the needs of the school (i.e., 7:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.). Up to 3 Saturdays per month may be required, on an overtime basis.
Founded by two bold, visionary educators in 1920, The Nightingale-Bamford School’s mission is to inspire girls to go beyond barriers. Tied to this mission is a broader vision of students who are joyful learners who have the intellectual depth and courage to be critical thinkers, compassionate citizens, and agents of their own lives. Nightingale educates girls’ minds and hearts and, in so doing, infuses their lives with meaningful relationships, teaching them to value difference as a means of growth and empowering them to question the status quo with confidence, empathy, resilience, and reason. Nightingale’s commitment to social justice and anti-racism requires that all community members engage actively and thoughtfully in work around diversity, equity, and inclusion. We encourage applications from candidates with broad and diverse backgrounds.
