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.

Frankie recently completed an internship with our Community Team at Hope and Homes for Children, here’s what she said about her time with us:

“I loved seeing events develop from start to finish and gained experience in different areas of the Team. The friendly and supportive environment at Hope and Homes for Children allowed me to build my confidence and gain in-sight into event management. I’d really encourage others to consider an internship at Hope and Homes for Children. I found it to be fun but highly engaging”.

We’re proud of the work we undertake to transform the lives of children and their families and are working internationally to be the catalyst  for change.  

We look forward to hearing from you.
