We have opportunities for new trustees to join CCS to support our work and help us drive our ambitions forward. Do you want to make a positive difference to the lives of children by helping them to find their forever family? Do you want to ensure there is ongoing, specialist support for children and families for as long as they need it? If so, this fantastic opportunity could be for you.

We are looking to recruit 2 new trustees, to join our Board, with a commitment to CCS and its mission, and a willingness to put time and energy into the trustee role.

We are looking for someone who has either professional or personal experience of finding permanent homes for vulnerable children who are unable to remain with their birth parents.

We are particularly interested to hear from you if are you are an adult adoptee who would be willing to bring your lived experience to this role. Or you may be an adopter who wants to bring their skills and experience. We are also particularly looking for individuals with expertise in the fields of Fundraising/Marketing and Health & Social Care.  

Ideally, but not essential, it would be helpful to have experience of working in the voluntary sector. Whether you are an experienced Trustee or wanting to take the first step at Board level, if you share our ethos, we'd like to hear from you.

CCS Adoption is a Voluntary Adoption Agency. We find permanent, loving homes for children who have a plan for adoption, including those who tend to wait longest. We also provide a range of therapeutic packages to adopted children and their families; and a wide range of innovative support services for adoptive families, offering groups, activities, workshops and training for Adoptive families from The Centre. Rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for the 5th time in a row in February 2024, we are continuously developing and improving our services for adoptive families.

CCS values itself on being an inclusive employer, committed to developing a diverse workforce and looking for people who can demonstrate dedication to our cause and core organisational values. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and continue to celebrate the diverse community that different individuals create. We are specifically looking to increase the diversity of our trustee board.

All Trustees with CCS are required to complete a DBS (and other) checks prior to their appointment. A copy of CCS Adoption's Safe & Fair Recruitment Policy can be found on the website.
