About the Group

We are the National Fostering Group – the UK’s largest independent fostering family.

With over 20 years of experience in foster care, we are committed to finding dedicated foster parents able to provide a safe and supportive environment for children and young people across the UK.

Our family of over 30 specialist, independent fostering agencies cover the entire UK by supporting communities locally. Whether that be children and young people or potential foster carers looking for short or long-term foster placements, our expert teams work closely with Local Authorities and Trusts across the country to find the perfect fostering opportunities.

In England, we are proud of the fact that 100% of our regional fostering provisions have been officially recognised by Ofsted as either ‘Outstanding’ or ‘Good’. Our high standards are replicated and equally highly regarded by the Care Inspectorate for Scotland and the Care Inspectorate Wales.

Based in our Ashburton office, you will work within the Referral Hub whereby your role is to safely match Looked After Children to our pool of dedicated foster carers.

This is a busy, demanding, customer facing role where you should be able to demonstrate effective multi-tasking and decision-making skills. We are looking for someone who is assertive, shows good initiative, and willing to take ownership of tasks, in addition to excelling in building positive and strong working relationships - Communication skills are key! The ideal candidate will hold the ability of working under timely pressures whilst providing excellent customer service with a variety of people at different levels, working alongside colleagues, Foster Carers and Local Authorities.

Ideally you will have experience or understanding of Looked After Children, and/or Local Authority structure and needs, particularly in the provision of services for children and young people, though this is not essential.

And that’s not all, we place the outcomes of the children and vulnerable young adults in our services at the heart of everything we do, so you’ll wake every day in the knowledge that your role will have a significant positive impact on the lives of others.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all employees to share this commitment and undertake appropriate checks.

We are an Equal Opportunities employer.
