TACT (The Adolescent and Children’s Trust) is the UK’s largest dedicated fostering charity operating across England, Wales and Scotland. We have over 500 foster carers providing loving homes for over 600 children and young people.
As a charity everything we do is for the benefit of children in care and on the fringes of care, which is reflected in our vision and values. We are beyond profit, which means that all surplus income is invested back into our services to ensure our carers and the children in our care receive the best possible support.
We are passionate about what we do, we strongly believe in equal opportunities and are committed to developing people’s potential. We want everyone who works for TACT to feel that they belong and feel happy in their work because we believe that’s the key to providing good customer service inside and outside the organisation.
TACT is a homebased workforce. We recognise the benefits that flexible home working creates for both the employer and the employee but we also encourage staff to meet face to face for regular supervision and the social and wellbeing benefits of team working. Where roles involve meeting with carers and children and other agencies, the expectation is that employees will live within a reasonable travelling distance to carry out those duties. As a remote working organisation we are committed to work with our staff to enable consistent inclusion and engagement across the organisation to ensure the optimum standards of service for our carers and children.
From social work to project management, we can offer you a challenging and rewarding career that really makes a difference to the most vulnerable children and young people. So have a look at our current vacancies and the range of benefits we can offer you.
