Careers

Vacancies are advertised below, if you are interested in joining the PACT team as a volunteer we also have  volunteer positions available. We are also looking for  self-employed contractors.

While I was working in a local authority I was aware of PACT and their good reputation and so I often visited the website looking for opportunities.  I was really pleased when I saw an advert for a new family finding scheme and so I applied and was successfully appointed.  It has been great working for an organisation where adoption is the focus in all we do and knowing that we can offer our families the most comprehensive and worthwhile support.  As a staff member PACT is also innovative and allows for lots of different opportunities for its staff and I have had the chance to work in many different roles.
