Our Human Resources team aims to provide an efficient and highly professional recruitment and selection service providing appropriate levels of support to prospective employees.


The RNCM is committed to protecting children and vulnerable adults from harm. We ensure that all staff are aware of their responsibilities for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. The College promotes a culture of safeguarding throughout the institution. Staff in relevant positions will be checked through the Disclosure and Barring Scheme before appointment is confirmed (all teaching staff are required to be cleared through DBS before teaching commences). The College expects all staff to understand and adhere to the Child Protection Policy.
