Work With Us

We believe that it’s the quality of the people who work with us that sets us apart – their energy, commitment, skills and burning desire to make a difference to young people’s lives.

We offer a working environment that values staff, promotes improvement and is small enough to give you a real chance to influence and achieve.

Investors In People

Young Futures is an Investors in People accredited organisation. We value the importance of determining the right strategy, keeping all team members on board, enhancing our management practices and continuously evaluating what’s working or needs further improvement. We deliver services in an increasingly competitive, rapidly changing sector with fewer resources. For us, the effective development of our team’s talents and career prospects is the only way we can ensure sustained growth and competitive advantage.

Positive About Disablities

Young Futures believes that people are disabled by barriers society places in their way and not by their own impairments. We believe that everybody has a role to play in society and we want to benefit from the widest range of talent available. Our recruitment policy aims to reflect these beliefs. Young Futures will offer interviews to any person who classifies themselves as having an impairment and who meets the criteria as detailed in the person specification.

Our Salary And Benefits Structure

We believe people should be paid well for work that delivers excellent service and changes the lives of young people leaving care. As a result we offer:

• Highly competitive sector salaries

• Recognition and promotion of excellent performance through a bonus system

• A pension

• A generous training budget

• Paid work-related travel
