Are you ready for a new challenge? 

We work to make sure every child and young person has the love, support and opportunity they need to reach their potential. If you share the same vision we want you to join our team.


How Action for Children works

We’re here to make sure any child who needs help, gets help. To do that, we need to help each other.

How? By creating a culture of mutual trust and respect. By putting our belief in diversity and equality into practice, every day. And by ensuring everyone gets the chance to progress and achieve great things.

When our people succeed, we succeed.

When we succeed, thousands of children’s lives change for the better.

We are aiming to be the most hard-working, effective and transparent charity working for children in the UK.


Find out just how fulfilling it can be taking action for children.

We’re always looking for the best people to join our team and to make a difference to thousands of children, young people and their families throughout the UK.

Working for us will give you a variety of opportunities to learn and develop in your career.
