Childcare Vacancies

Preparing young people for independence in a caring home environment.

Working in Residential Childcare

Our Children’s Homes are just that – homes. 

They are a safe and stable place for our children to grow and be happy. We spend a lot of time investing in our properties to ensure that they are well maintained and a place we would be happy to live in too.

Individuals from all walks of life bring a mix of experience, skills and passion to a Family Care residential home. It won’t be an easy job, but it will be so rewarding and worthwhile.

Our young people deserve to have their horizons broadened and to learn how to live life to the full. If you can cook, climb a hill, paint a mural or just have a great sense of humour and a desire to learn, we want to hear from you! Your life skills will make a difference to a young person’s life.

You will join a staff team that is focused on significantly improving the lives of all our young people. It is not easy to make such a difference, and our staff teams show endless commitment and determination in supporting each young person to develop and succeed.

You are not simply joining a home; you are becoming part of a family.  Our children’s homes work in tandem with our Family Care schools and our dedicated Therapeutic Team.  We all work together; supporting, encouraging and reflecting, to ensure every child and young person thrives in our care.

You will become role models for socially aware behaviour and emotional intelligence in our young people. You will help with homework and school projects, always doing your best to support a young person’s learning. But mostly, you will be a safe person that they can rely on and turn to when they need support and guidance the most.

Be part of improving someone’s life forever.
