Work for TACT

TACT (The Adolescent and Children’s Trust) is the UK’s largest fostering and adoption charity and voluntary agency, with  eleven local offices across England, Wales and Scotland. We have been providing loving with 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.

A rewarding career

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.

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.

Equal Opportunities

Our Equal Opportunities Policy covers both employment and service provision. We aim to have a workforce that reflects the communities in which we work.

Positive about Disability

TACT has been awarded the Disability Symbol. It’s a recognition given by Jobcentre Plus to employers based in Great Britain who have agreed to take action to meet five commitments regarding the employment, retention, training and career development of disabled employees. Employers who use the symbol have agreed with Jobcentre Plus that they will take action on these five commitments:

  • To interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities
  • To ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss, at any time, but at least once a year, with disabled employees what can be done to make sure they can develop and use their abilities
  • To make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
  • To take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work
  • Each year to review the five commitments and what has been achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans.
