Who are we looking for?


We are always interested to hear from experienced care workers, education staff, managers and specialists, as well as people that are considering a career working with children and young people for the very first time. As a progressive and fast growing organisation, we often have vacancies in a number of fields and look to recruit individuals of all ages from a wide variety of backgrounds and professions.


Ethelbert Children's Services operate and actively promote equal opportunities and value diversity in all areas of our work and in the recruitment of team members and foster carers. To support this, we are keen to increase currently under-represented sections of our communities and encourage applications from a cross-section of society, irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, faith, age or disability.


If you would like to know more about working with children and young people, or wish to register your interest in working at Ethelbert Childrens Services, please telephone our Personnel Department on 01843 823762, or contact us directly from here.

During the current pandemic there are understandable concerns around children residing in social care and the ability of social care organisations to provide continuity of service.


Based on all available government advice and guidance, and following a review of our current resources, Ethelbert Children’s Services have shared a comprehensive Business Continuity Plan (BCP) with each of its local authority partners and relevant regulatory bodies.


At this time, we do not foresee any significant difficulties in providing ongoing residential care and/or fostering services.


As new information and guidance becomes available, will be reviewing our BCP and updating our partners accordingly.


Should you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
