Graduate programme

The Anchor graduate programme is your opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of the people who live with us. Now with our support, it’s time to get started.

Our one aim is to bring older people happy living for the years ahead. We have over 100 care homes across England, including homes that specialise in caring for people living with dementia. We’re very proud of the quality of care we provide and our care homes are highly rated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Our leasehold housing and rented schemes are all about providing older people with independence and security within a happy community.

The people living in our 1000 housing locations have very different needs from those living in our care homes. We’re there to provide help when they need it and to take the stress out of everyday life. We also help to create a sense of community.

We also have hundreds of talented professionals with a range of specialist skills and experience based in our Bradford and London offices. While we all do sometimes very different things, we work towards the same goal of improving the lives of the people who live with us.

Your Graduate programme

We’ll put your development at the heart of our graduate offer, giving you the chance to gain the experience you need to excel in your chosen profession. From the moment you join us, you’ll have real responsibility and work on projects that help make people’s lives better.

You’ll get extensive practical on-the-job learning, coaching from the experts around you and mentoring from one of our executive board members. We’ll even support you in gaining relevant professional accreditation.

The programme will enable you to rotate across core disciplines in your chosen field, providing you with broad experience that is underpinned by a formal learning offer usually reserved for our leaders.

Once you have completed your graduate programme, you’ll have the skills and experience needed to take your career forwards and will be able to apply for permanent positions with us.
