Join our family
We take pride in the high quality of services we provide to children, young people and their families.
It goes without saying that we couldn't provide this level of service if we didn't have a dedicated, professional and enthusiastic workforce, one made up of people from all walks of life with a passion for what they do.
As an organisation that focuses on quality, we are committed to ensuring that we continue to bring in and develop the talented people we need to deliver these services to the best possible standards. This means that we are always on the lookout for new additions to our teams: quality people who can bring their own valuable skills and experiences with them.
Joining CHILDREN 1ST is just the first step in enhancing your career
From day one, we will take your personal and professional development seriously. We will work with you to develop your skills and knowledge through a wide range of learning and development opportunities, both in-house and through external providers.
Our internal Learning & Development professionals will provide you with support and advice, and will continue to enhance our in-house programme to ensure it meets all of our needs.
And finally, we'll give you rewarding and challenging work which will help develop your skills. All we ask for in return is your commitment to helping us maintain our high standards, and a professional and enthusiastic attitude to your work.
