We regularly hear from our team that our health benefits are some of the most generous that folks have ever had in any job.
We also offer life, accidental death/disability, and long-term disability coverage, at no cost to the employee.
We strive to offer a flexible workplace environment. Many of the positions on our team offer the opportunity to perform much of the work remotely.
While most of our staff work a typical 9–5 schedule, many members of our team organize their work schedules to accommodate the needs of their role along with their personal needs. This can mean starting and ending your workday earlier, or otherwise adjusting your work week to help you balance your personal and family priorities.
We encourage staff to take the time they need to sustain themselves. Our staff receive generous paid time off, including floating holidays that can be taken anytime throughout the year. Most importantly, a core tenet of NC Child’s culture is that we respect your time off. That means you can unplug and take real breaks – with no work texts or calls.
