Careers in Care &
Children’s Homes

Our children’s homes are exactly that – homes.  Warm and welcoming, they offer constant support and stability, so children feel safe and happy in a familiar and comfortable setting.

We are the leading children’s home provider in the country with the highest percentage of homes rated ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. 

We create home settings that make a true difference.  To realise such inspirational environments takes a continuous mix of skills, experience and ambition that can be found from all walks of life.  It’s certainly not an easy job but it definitely is a rewarding one. 

We want our children’s care homes to be full of activity, new experiences and, most importantly, fun and laughter.  Whether you’re a skilled cook, have a passion for the outdoors or a film buff, we want our children’s home staff to bring their passions, experience and interests with them, so our young people are encouraged to broaden their horizons and live life to the full.

Our commitment to you

Our staff are central to everything we do, so we will always strive to be the best employer we can be.


We offer sector leading salaries and development packages to help you get to where you want, so you can succeed both in and out of work.


You’ll receive a comprehensive induction programme and exceptional training, which means from day one you can start to make the difference.


With 35 days holiday, including bank holidays, we want you to strike the right work/life balance.


We’ll continue to provide more and more staff benefits, such as a Medicash Health Plan, Employee Assistance and Cycle to Work Scheme.

You’ll join a staff team that is focused on achieving the very best for all of our young people and realising life changing outcomes.  It is not easy to make such a difference, but our staff teams show endless commitment and determination to supporting each young person to develop and succeed. 

You’re not just joining a home, you’re becoming part of a family.  Our children’s homes work in tandem with our Witherslack Group schools and also our dedicated Clinical Services Team.  We all work together; supporting, encouraging and reflecting, to ensure every child and young person thrives with us.

You’ll play your part in helping our young people achieve academically through supporting them with their homework; succeeding socially by encouraging them as they take on new challenges that broaden their horizons; and developing emotionally as you become their role model and set the standards they aspire to in life. 

You’ll need to bring everything you’ve got, do everything you can, and strive to make the biggest difference possible, but we guarantee the sense of pride you will feel in being part of something truly life changing will make it all worthwhile.
