At Caring For Life, our work is based on the principle of Christian servanthood, because the way we support beneficiaries, and manage staff and volunteers, should all bring glory to God. The principal aim of Caring For Life is to share the love of Jesus on a daily and very practical basis with many people, some of whom might have generally known nothing of His love, doing so through loving care and example, and it is our desire that they come to personal faith in Christ Jesus and become a part of His church.


These posts involve taking an active role in providing compassionate and consistent care to beneficiaries, taking part in prayer times, providing personal testimony in experiencing Jesus’ love with both beneficiaries and members of the local community, and you may from time to time be asked to assist in supporting presentations in representing the Trust predominantly to Christian church groups.

As such, there is a requirement for the holder of these posts to be a practising Christian.

This is an Occupational Requirement in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.

See below for current opportunities and register your interest.

All posts are subject to references and a DBS check.
