We want to invest in the long-term outcomes of the young people in our care. As such we will reinvest any surplus profit back into our homes, and Positive Futures. By doing this, we can ensure that we make a real difference to the lives of our young people we care for while making our homes a great place to work at.
What makes us different?

What are we looking for?
We are looking for passionate, child-centered individuals who share our ethos in wanting to provide the best quality of care to the young people who reside in our homes. As a PFH employee you will be responsible for providing the highest standard of care for our children and help promote a safe and nurturing environment for their development. The children that we care for demonstrate a wide range of challenging behaviours and can be very demanding of your time, attention, and emotions. You will need a high level of self-resilience and can understand that the challenging behaviours our children may display are often the result of abuse and or neglect and other negative early childhood experiences. As part of your hours, you will be required to work weekends, unsocial hours, Bank Holidays, and sleep-in duties.
In return we will offer:
• An excellent salary with sleep-ins payments additional to this.
