Why work with us?
Our culture and values
At Frontline we’re driven by our mission to transform lives across the country. We’re passionate about what we do, and are guided by the values that underpin all of our work:
- Be brave: be prepared to challenge and don’t always reach for the easy answer
- Show respect: recognise and value the contributions of others
- Pioneer: generate new ideas and make ripples or waves by sharing successes and setbacks
- Stay curious: be continually reflective and open to adapting how we work
- What matters is what works: be practical, flexible and outcome-focussed
We look for people who can make brave decisions and be leaders. Our people show respect and recognise the contribution of others, collaborating on work and role modelling behaviours. We look for innovators who can be creative and achieve goals. Being curious and reflective is an important part of performance and development. Delivering and receiving feedback is also crucial. We always seek to find practical non-bureaucratic solutions to complex areas of work.
Developing our people
We will develop you through stretching roles, setting clear objectives and identifying behaviours you need to demonstrate to achieve your goals. You will be supported in regular reviews around the scope of your role and career aspirations.
We encourage you to develop skills and provide learning and development opportunities including the support of a mentor or coach, and will endeavour to provide these where possible.
Frontline measures your performance against 5 core behavioural competencies linked to our values.
Pay and benefits
We’re a Living Wage employer offering competitive salaries. We will reward you each year for performance that delivers our strategic aims in line with our values and behavioural competencies.
We give you 25 days holiday per year (in addition to bank holidays) rising by one day per year after two years in service, up to a maximum of 30 days. We give all staff extra days at Christmas as the office closes from 25 December to 2 January.
We offer you between one and three days to volunteer in a mission-aligned charity.
Flexible working is an important part of our culture. All employees work around a core hours policy between 10.00am – 4.30pm giving you flexibility to work around these hours. We also encourage working from home one day a week.
All Frontline employees meet twice a year at an offsite away day to reflect on the past year and celebrate successes.

We are committed to taking an inclusive approach to recruitment and selection.
