career with progress


Care is Care wherever you work. What makes the difference is working for an organisation that values you, listens to you, supports you to grow, develops your skills and helps you to achieve your ambitions. Progress loves people that have drive and want to change things. We want to give you the opportunity to do something that you love in a role that you can get stuck into. If you are looking for a job with career progression and opportunities then Progress could be for you.

Progress specialise in providing care for children and young adults with learning disabilities, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Moderate Challenging Behaviour, Mental Health and Self Harming and children who are socially and emotionally delayed through neglect and harm.

We expect hard work, commitment and passion; for you to support young people and families and to do what is right, not what is easiest. Progress is built with strong values, openness, transparency and a reputation you can trust to deliver.

What can we offer?

Progress are looking for inspirational people that we can invest in. If you have a passion for people, get pleasure from helping others and making a difference then look no further. We are dedicated to providing our staff with opportunities to develop skills and qualifications to access careers in Social Work, Nursing, Mental Health, counselling and many others.

Your experience and qualifications are not the only thing that matter to us; we are more interested in your passion to make a difference in the lives of others and supporting people to be the best that they can be.

If you are ready to join us and welcome a challenge then please check out our current vacancies below.

Due to our unique environment all of our positions are subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure. For our residential vacancies, there is also a requirement for compulsory attendance and maintenance of mandatory training as well as regular supervisions.

Just imagine...

Changing the life of a whole family by helping a child to self-manage their behaviours or care. Whilst working alongside the family through trusting relationships to help them get the best from their child.

Being able to support young people and families when times are tough; to be someone they can rely on and a shoulder to cry on.

At the same time, you are being trained to develop your skills and achieve your career aspirations within a company that supports and cares about your views; as recognised by Investors in People and Best Companies.

Working for a social care organisation where you do not have to compromise and are encouraged to think for yourself.

A job with flexibility where you can increase and decrease work depending on your personal circumstances whilst gaining valuable skills and experience, improving your career options.

A job where you can try your hand in different areas of social care, working out what makes you tick.

A job that offers a broad range of benefits that are designed to suit you and your needs.

Looking for fresh start or a new challenge? Think Progress and “just imagine” what the future could hold.
