RBF generally runs one recruitment round per year between April and June. If any posts are available during or outside of our main recruitment window, they are listed in the 'Current Vacancies' box below.

If there are no vacancies currently advertised but you would like to get in touch about joining RBF in the future, contact in the first instance and we will be happy to give you more information about working for RBF.


We are always very happy to welcome applications from people who would like to volunteer with the Red Balloon Family on any of our projects. The minimum age for volunteers is School Year 5 and there is certainly no maximum age!


We are also able to offer nationally recognised accreditation to our volunteers through our registration as an ASDAN college.
