Career opportunity with leading UK fostering agency

Five Rivers
Five Rivers

Excellent salary benefits enhanced fostering allowance and weekly retainer fee available.

Five Rivers is one of the UK’s leading social enterprises specialising in foster care for some of the country’s most vulnerable children and young people. We are looking to recruit a number of candidates with relevant transferable skills including those with health and social care experience or previous experiencing working with children and young people.

Emergency foster carers are required for periods of 28 days or less to support young people under the age of 18, often at short or little notice.

All candidates must have one spare room available and preferably no other children residing in the home. This can be overlooked if a candidate with the right skills can demonstrate that they could offer the emergency foster care service alongside other children. Full training and 24-hour support will be provided.

Carers will receive an enhanced fee during placement periods and a retainer fee when awaiting the next placement.
