with us


We believe that it’s the quality of the people who work with us that sets us apart – their energy, commitment, skills and burning desire to make a difference to young people’s lives.

We offer a working environment that values staff, promotes improvement and is small enough to give you a real chance to influence and achieve.


COVID-19 and Recruitment

Our Community and Residential Services are essential, so we are continuing to operate as safely as possible throughout the pandemic. We understand that some people may be returning to this field after a gap, or may want to begin working in this field and have transferrable skills from other areas of experience, and we welcome all applications. 

We are following government guidance and have a relevant Business Continuity and Operational Guide. Meeting candidates is essential, so we will be offering face-to face-interviews in our Head Office (SE11 6EE) that comply with social distancing and safety measures.
