Work for us

Thank you for your interest in working for SFCS. We are currently recruiting for the following staff.


St Francis’ Children’s Society is a charity and independent adoption agency. Our main focus is on placing vulnerable children with new families through our highly-regarded Adoption Connections service, which also offers extensive support to adopters before, during and after placement.

We are currently looking for a Social worker/Senior Social Worker to join our team.

All social workers are currently expected to undertake a range of work within the broad sphere of family placement including recruitment, training, assessment, matching and placement support.

We have capacity for one full-time social worker, but would consider employing the right candidate(s) on a part-time basis. We encourage social workers seeking part-time hours to submit their applications. Applications from newly qualified social workers also welcome.

Full details of the vacancy are in the links below. If you have any questions or require further information, please contact Suzanne Strachan (Adoption Manager) or Alison Miller (CEO) for further details on 01908 572700.

Closing date is Monday 26th November, with interviews taking place on Friday 7th December.

St. Francis' Children's Society is first and foremost committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers working with children to share this commitment. We apply recruitment and selection procedures which seek to ensure that no employee or volunteer is appointed who may pose a risk to children or is otherwise unsuitable to work with them.
