The Children's Society has been helping children and young people in this country for over 130 years. We run local services that support children when they are at their most vulnerable and in desperate need of help. We're there for children, every step of the way.

This role sits within our children and families directorate, which works to provide immediate one-to-one and group support for children who urgently need support. Your role will be to help us maintain and develop innovative practice to support our work in our services around the country.

We are currently looking for an experienced worker to join our dynamic, ambitious team.

A key part of this role will be your ability to engage with young people across 2 different services, one with young people who have been reported missing and secondly with young people who have experienced domestic violence.


In order to be successful in this role, you must have:

- Experience of working directly with vulnerable children particularly who are missing and in care of local authorities

- Significant experience as a counselling practitioner or working directly and therapeutically with children and young people.

- A relevant professional qualification

- Accurate IT skills and case recording

-Knowledge of safeguarding and Child Protection


The Children's Society runs over 100 local services that help thousands of young people who desperately need our support, and we campaign to get laws and policies changed to make children's lives happier and safer.

Every day we're changing the lives of children in this country for the better - and with your help, tomorrow we can be there for even more.

The Children's Society is committed to safeguarding and protecting the children and young people that we work with. As such, all posts are subject to a safer recruitment process, including the disclosure of criminal records and vetting checks. We ensure that we have a range of policies and procedures in place which promote safeguarding and safer working practices across our services.

Therefore, candidates applying for work in our CYP Directorate will be required to complete an “Employment history_template” document prior to interview. The fully completed document should be loaded by the candidate at the point of uploading your CV.

The closing date for applications is 29th July
