paid roles

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. 


If you would like to volunteer, please contact for our latest volunteering application form.

The Red Balloon Foundation Team is organised into three strands all supported by our Operations Team:

  • RBF Education Team - looking after children in our OFSTED registered settings and running various academic and skills development based programmes;

  • RBF Outreach Team - engaging with children, young people and families in partnership with other organisations usually in a faith context;

  • RBF Resource Team - production of a variety of resources both electronic and physical to assist others with their engagement with children, young people and families.

Where vacancies become available in any team, they will be posted here.
