Working with Parents for Children

Parents for Children is committed to providing a high quality, child-centred service. In order to achieve this, we need the right staff who are supportive, professional and keen to achieve real improvements for the children and families we help.

We are a small not-for-profit charity and, as such, we don’t often have vacancies for permanent staff. However, from time to time, vacancies do arise. Our team of full and part-time staff work across a range of roles: from social workers to administrators; from psychologists to events organisers; from IT specialists to fundraisers.

We also work with a small team of sessional social workers based throughout the UK. We are always pleased to hear from social workers who are interested in opportunities to work with us on a sessional basis.

You can view our list of current vacancies here.

If you’re interested in working with us, please send a copy of your CV to [email protected]. Alternatively, please post a copy to HR department, Parents for Children, 3 Angel Gate, 326 City Road, London EC1V 2PT. If you are applying for a specific vacancy, you can download a copy of our application form here, or call us to have a copy posted to you.
