Work for us

There has never been a better time to join us!

We are proud that Together for Children has been rated as Outstanding in a judgement by Ofsted, in recognition of the stability of our very well supported and talented workforce who deliver an unstinting commitment to improving children's outcomes in the city.  This is what they told us in their latest focus visit in 2023:

Workers trust senior leaders and describe them as committed, visible and approachable. Senior leaders are very close to operational practice. They know workers by name and have a good knowledge of the children that they are working with. Workers said that this makes them feel valued, and that leaders are genuinely interested in them and in the children's progress and well-being.


Workers say that they feel well supported to carry out their role and benefit from a range of training relevant to their career pathway. Together for Children invests strongly in supporting workers in their assessed and supported year in employment (ASYE). This enhances worker skills and promotes retention.

Our amazing award-winning workforce delivers high quality, modern and responsive services that improve the lives of children and their families in Sunderland, bringing commercial skills to public services delivery. 

The fact that we're still relatively new and developing all the time means that there is no better time to join us. We offer real opportunities to work creatively and differently in the provision of our services for children and young people in Sunderland.
