Work for us

96.9% of staff say they are committed to our Vision and Mission

Our staff share our vision of a world in which children no longer suffer institutional care.  Our mission is to be the catalyst for the global eradication of institutional care of children and we are well on the way.

90.6% of staff are committed to upholding our values

Our values define us and putting them into practice enables us to go the extra mile. It is through our values of Excellence, Courage and Integrity that we will prove wrong those people who do not think we can change the world.

93.8% of staff say they work in a happy, friendly environment and 90.7% of staff have good working relationships with staff across the organisation

As we expand to increase the impact of our work we need individuals to join our committed and skilled team to ensure more children have the chance to grow up with a family. Our head office, where we employ approximately 50 staff, is near Salisbury, South Wiltshire in the UK and we are currently establishing an office base in London.

Each of our country programmes has an office base and a range of field workers. We are committed to supporting the economies of the countries in which we work and for this reason, overseas vacancies are advertised and filled locally.

Current vacancies

Senior Major Partnerships Manager

Salary: Up to £50,000 including London Weighting

Location: Loman Street, London

Hours: 37.5 hours

Contract type: Permanent

When a baby in an orphanage cries, nobody comes to comfort them. Soon they learn not to cry and instead internalise their pain, causing lifelong damage.

Orphanages are often silent places for children deprived of love and deprived of life and a future.

Hope and Homes for Children believes that every child has the right to the love and protection of a family. We are the global expert in ending a system of care that is destroying the lives of 8 million children today.

We are determined to end this injustice in our lifetime. And that takes money. Our fundraising strategy paves the way to doubling and then doubling income again by 2022.

Which is where you come in.

We are recruiting for an experienced, ambitious fundraising manager to work as part of our major partnerships team. There are good foundations in place - this year we are on target to almost double 2015 income, we are six months into a two-year partnership with Deutsche Bank and our seventeen year partnership with St James's Place Wealth Management continues to go from strength-to-strength. There is also a dynamic and talented team bursting with potential.

You'll be helping us to deliver these partnerships whilst continuing to grow our pipeline across both corporate and major donors and you'll do it in a way that builds the skills, confidence and capacity of the team.

You'll be part of an organisation that is transforming children's lives. Together, we'll be changing the world. Take a look at our recruitment pack; we'd love to hear from if you feel you can help us delivery our ambitions.
