  • various rates of pay
  • various hours

Please note: we cannot guarantee regular work, a specific job or start date or regular income.

Closing Date:

  • this is an ongoing recruitment process

Required qualification level:

  • Level 2

About this job

The Family Information Service, part of the ‘Front Door for Families’ provides advice, guidance and access to specialist services in the city and has also been operating the At Home Childcare Service across Brighton & Hove for 10 years. We have been praised by parents as an “informative, supportive and friendly” service.

Our At Home Childcare service provides parents with professional, registered childcare in their own homes and supports early year’s professionals with finding work.

To become an At Home Childcarer, you must be willing to:

  • be resident in Brighton & Hove and have a childcare / early year’s qualification
  • hold or gain a Paediatric First Aid Certificate
  • register with Ofsted on the Voluntary part of the Childcare register / obtain your Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check / take up public liability insurance - all of which, we will fund for the first year that you join us

To support you, we also:

  • provide safeguarding training and lone working/risk assessment advice
  • have regular networking sessions to meet up and share your experiences with other childcarers
  • offer ongoing phone and email support, information and advice
  • offer access to council-run training, day and short courses
  • provide an online profile to promote you to parents

At Home Childcarers undertake a wide range of work, which could range from a long term role with the same family through to ad hoc care when needed – sometimes at short notice.

If successful, most At Home Childcarers become self-employed and we encourage you to market yourself, wherever parents might look for childcare, as well as advertising for free on our online directory (www.familyinfobrighton.org.uk )
We may also offer you opportunities to work at local crèches or contact you as a result of a social worker request for ad-hoc and urgent childcare.

How to apply

If you have any questions, or would like to apply, please contact Sian Bruce by email at familyinfo@brighton-hove.gov.uk.

Foster Carers

Closing Date:

  • this is an ongoing recruitment process

Required qualification level:

  • relevant childcare experience

We are currently looking to recruit foster carers to become part of the team of childcare professionals in Brighton & Hove who support children in care.

About this job

Foster carers look after children in their own homes and provide them with the secure and nurturing environment they need. They care for children aged from birth to 18 years. Some children return to their birth families or other family members, some are supported through continued fostering until they are ready to live independently and some move onto adoption or residential care.

From short-term and respite care, to long term foster care and supported lodgings, there are many different types of foster placement. We will guide you to find out what will work for you and your family, and we will provide all the support and training you need along the way. Whether you want to foster alongside your career or become a full-time carer; our team will help you develop and progress in a way that is right for you.

To become a foster carer you need a spare bedroom, childcare experience (this does not have to have been gained as a parent) and a desire to make a difference to children’s lives.

Foster carers receive a basic allowance to cover the costs of caring for a child and a fee to recognise service, skills and training completed. The allowance depends on the age of the child, and the fostering fee depends on the number of years’ experience you have had as a foster carer. The combined amount starts at £317 per week.

How to apply

Being a Foster Carer is a vital role. It is challenging but rewarding.

Brighton & Hove City Council Fostering Team recruits foster carers for local children of all ages.

Foster carers provide a safe, stable, nurturing home where a child or young person can live whilst their own family is unable to look after them.

Children come into foster care for many reasons - it may be because of a family illness, family breakdown or problems at home.
