Work for us

We focus on what we can offer our employees as well as what you can do for us. If you want to join a team that makes a difference then why not have a look at our current vacancies.

We bring people together to overcome society’s most complex issues, building stronger communities through the power of volunteering. We work with local communities, turning local knowledge and energy into action and progress. And because we’re a national charity, we do this at scale.

We want our teams to reflect the breadth and diversity of the communities we work with.

We live our values in everything we do and honour the commitments we’ve made to our employees and volunteers to keep our culture of openness, positivity, flexibility, support and inclusivity at the forefront of everything we do.

It isn’t just about how our teams work together, it’s also about the pride we take in treating people with respect, trust, and compassion. That’s why we hold ourselves to account with our values-based recruitment approach, a candidate charter and ways of working that create a positive, open and supportive place to enable each member of our team to make their best contribution From flexible working to salary transparency, creating a compassionate and inclusive culture to unlimited leave, we’re serious about being the employer each of us has always wanted to work for.
