Please explore our current opportunities for paid employment, volunteering and student placements.

The Matthew Project welcomes applicants from all backgrounds and we welcome applicants who have had previous drug histories or are ex-offenders for example; see our Recruitment of Ex-Offender Policy for more details. We also adhere to the Home Office Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Code of Conduct. Please contact us if you require a paper copy of either of these documents.
