Why work for Family for Every Child? 

You will be part of a global team working on a crucial mission: to strengthen a global network of national civil society organisations that mobilises knowledge, skills and resources so that every child can grow up in a permanent, safe and caring family, and to support temporary, quality alternative care where needed. 

We pride ourselves on our flexible and family-friendly ways of working, and offer a competitive package. We believe that the contractual benefits that we offer exceed statutory benefits in most countries, but where local legislation is more favourable to employees, that will apply. 

We know how important it is for people to be able to work flexibly so that they can develop personally and meet their family commitments while having a satisfying job. This means that we strive to enable people to work from wherever they are based, and to be flexible about agreeing working hours. We support our staff with the resources to be able to work from home, and with the skills training that they need to develop in their role. 

Global employment

We have registered addresses in the UK, US and New Zealand, but we have no physical office anywhere.  All staff work remotely from their homes. We employ staff in different countries, including the UK and New Zealand, and several countries in Asia, Africa and Europe. 

Roles are not country-specific, but if we require the post-holder to work from a specific country, this will be mentioned in the advert and on the job description. We do not send or request staff to work in specific countries; we employ people to work where they live, usually from their home. 

All staff must have the right to work in the country where they are based. We establish the most appropriate method of employment during recruitment. Employment status and rights will be compliant with the legislation of the country of employment. 


We offer a flexible working environment with competitive benefits to support your work and personal life: 

  • Flexible and family-friendly employment policies which support your work life balance
  • 36 days annual leave (including bank and public holidays, and including up to six days between Christmas and New Year). This is pro-rated for part time staff.

  • Time off in lieu for additional hours worked beyond a full time week (of 35 hours)

  • Life assurance (up to 3 times salary) 
  • A generous training budget and study leave days to help you develop to your full potential
