Job Opportunities - Current Vacancies

We’re delighted that you’re taking a look at the possibility of working with the Frances Taylor Foundation! 

If you are successful, you’ll be in good company – see what some of our current staff say about working for us

Our current staff vacancies are listed below. Most have a closing date, and often this is quite strict – but if you’ve just missed it, please call for advice.

We need you please to fill in our job application form – this means that we get the same range of information from each candidate, and we ask you to confirm various statements on the declaration page. We cannot accept applications by CV only.

Job Application Form (Word)
Job Application Form (PDF)
Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form (PDF)

Once you have completed the application form please e-mail it (or print it and post it) in line with the instructions listed for the vacancy concerned. 

Each job has a job description which is about the role, and a person specification which is about the person we are looking for. Please read these carefully. The application form has space for a supporting statement – this is your chance to sell yourself and to explain how you meet the requirements set out in the person specification. You must complete the form yourself, in your own words. 

Most of our jobs involve regular work with people who the law regards as “vulnerable adults”. We therefore require you to undergo an enhanced disclosure process with the Disclosure and Barring Service [DBS]. This means that convictions which might be regarded as spent for other purposes, must still be declared – unless they are “protected” and therefore filtered out in the DBS checking process: see https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dbs-filtering-guidance/dbs-filtering-guide#what-pnc-information-will-be-filtered-from-inclusion-on-a-dbs-certificate. We will ask you to apply for a DBS enhanced disclosure if we make you a conditional offer of employment, and at the same time we are also required by law to ask you to provide evidence that you have the right to work in the UK. 

The Frances Taylor Foundation is committed to Equal Opportunities and employment opportunities are open to all.
