Our rewards and benefits
As England’s largest not-for-profit provider of care and housing for older people, we’re able to offer better wages and negotiate great benefits for our people. Here are just some of the things you’ll get when you work with Anchor.
Driving up wages in care
We believe in paying our people a salary that rewards their hard work and great customer service.
Proof of that is our commitment to giving a living wage to all our fully-qualified carers. What’s more, we’ll cover the costs of getting the nationally recognised qualifications you need to reach that level.
Across all of the roles we offer, our wages are very competitive. And as you develop and progress your career, you’ll always get the pay increase you deserve. As a not-for-profit organisation, every penny we make or save gets reinvested in our customers and the people who work here.
But there’s a lot more to Anchor’s rewards and benefits than wages alone.
Looking after your future
Working at Anchor means you’ll have a powerful way to save for your retirement, thanks to our simple and effective pension scheme. Provided by Legal and General, it allows you to make contributions while saving on your tax. We’ll contribute too and should you die before retirement while working with us, we’ll provide a lump sum for your next of kin.
Putting your wellbeing first
With generous annual leave per year and the ability to buy and sell your leave, you’ll find it easy to manage your work-life balance. And maternity, paternity and adoption leave mean that when your family grows, you’ll have the time to make the most of it.
In addition, our Health Cash Plan gives you money back to help cover a range of medical costs including dentists’ bills, new glasses, physiotherapy and much more. We also offer a 25% discount on Bupa health insurance.
Making your money go further
We provide a number of schemes that let you pay monthly for goods and services directly from your salary. This means you can make big savings on your tax while making interest-free monthly payments on things like childcare vouchers, TVs, computers and bikes.
Anchor only online discounts
Our Reward Gateway website offers big savings on everything from holidays and high-street fashion to groceries and everyday items. We’ve negotiated amazing deals with over 3,000 suppliers and you and your family members can get access from any device as soon as you join us.
The essentials are free
It goes without saying, but the uniforms we wear, the flu jabs that keep us healthy and the tea and coffee that keep us going are all completely free.
