Join our team to help us care and campaign for people with disfigurements to their face and body

Changing Faces is the UK’s leading charity for everyone who has a medical condition, mark or scar that makes them look different. We are there for people at the key moments in their lives, whether that’s starting school, going for an interview, during their medical journey, or if they experience bullying or harassment.

Changing Faces is all about building strong, resilient, confident people with the same ambitions and aspirations as any other person, regardless of how they look. We won’t stop until people with visible differences have the confidence, support and respect to lead the lives they choose.

In order to carry out our work we have an extremely dedicated and talented team of professional staff based in London, Yorkshire & the Humber, Edinburgh & Glasgow.

Please see below our current vacancies:

Skin Camouflage Volunteers

Changing Faces is the UK’s leading charity for everyone who has a mark, scar or condition that makes them look different. Being different in a society where there is such pressure to look a certain way is extremely difficult. We provide advice and

We are looking for volunteers to join our Skin Camouflage Service in Birmingham, Leeds, and Nottingham, to help grow and develop the service in these key areas.

You will receive full RCN-accredited training, mentoring with an experienced practitioner, and ongoing support from our central London office, as well as the opportunity to participate in personal development opportunities.

This is an amazing opportunity for anyone interested in making a difference in the lives of people affected by visible difference.
First, please read through our role profile below before emailing us on skincam@changingfaces.org.uk or calling 0300 012 0276. We’ll be happy to talk you through the application form, or answer any questions you may have.
