Work for TACT

TACT (The Adolescent and Children’s Trust) is the UK’s largest fostering and adoption charity and voluntary agency, with nine 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.

You can register for job alerts here which will allow us to notify you directly by email whenever a vacancy that suits your preferences arises.

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.

The Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work for

TACT has successfully been named as one of the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work for in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2017 & 2018 in the top 100 small companies category.

TACT is a Disability Confident Employer

In April 2020, TACT moved from being a “Disability Confident Committed” organisation to being a “Disability Confident Employer”. TACT is committed to increasing understanding of disability; removing barriers to people with long-term health conditions and ensuring that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfill their potential and realise their aspirations.  This achievement marks us completing the second stage of our Disability Confident journey and we will continue to regularly review and improve our practices, policies and procedures to help positively change attitudes, behaviours and cultures for the benefit of TACT employees, our carers and the children and young people we work with.

TACT is a ‘Time to Change Employer’

In September 2019, TACT demonstrated our commitment to promoting the positive mental well-being of our staff by signing the Time to Change Employer Pledge.

The Time to Change campaign is the biggest ever programme to challenge mental health stigma, led by mental health charities MIND and Rethink Mental Health. By choosing to be open about mental health, we at TACT are part of a movement that’s changing the conversation around mental health and ensuring that no one is made to feel isolated or alone.
