PACT is an amazing charity providing adoption and family support services which help hundreds of families every year.   PACT is a values driven organisation, where people are genuinely passionate about delivering positive outcomes for children, vulnerable women and families.

Our CEO Jan Fishwick OBE, who has been an outstandingly successful leader for 13 years, is planning to retire early in 2021 and so we are seeking a new leader to take PACT forward as we enter our next phase of growth and development.

This is a challenging and very exciting role with enormous potential for the right person to extend both the reach and the range of our services.  If you are a highly motivated individual who is passionate about our work we would love to hear from you.
