Why work when you could do something worthwhile? 

We believe that every child should have safety, stability and hope. No excuses.  

Careers at Anchor


“I felt like part of the family”

“Anchor is truly family orientated, and I felt like part of the family when I worked there. I looked forward to going to work as I had good relations with my colleagues, particularly in the social work team. I had to relocate away to support family members but, if Anchor opened up an office in my new area, I’d definitely look at coming back!”

Driven by a passion to do more? Join us. 

For some agencies, fostering placements are a matter of numbers, monthly targets and finances.  

But that’s where we’re different.  

During the last two decades we’ve built a community of individuals who all subscribe to our aim to deliver more, for those who can’t for themselves.  

Our mission is to ensure every child has a stable, happy and safe childhood, and we want people like you to help us do more of it.



Help make a lasting impact  

A big part of achieving our mission is not only securing great care for children, but also ensuring they are placed with the right family and supported, so their needs are consistently met.  

To help us do this, we’re always on the lookout for individuals who have a positive attitude, empathic nature and a persistent desire to go above and beyond. It’s an approach that’s helped us make a real difference to the lives of children and young people for more than 20 years. So, if you’ve got it, then we want to hear from you.  


The Anchor family  

As a not-for-profit organisation, our focus isn’t on profit or paying shareholder dividends.   

Instead, it’s on our people.  

And by people, we mean the amazing individuals that work for us, with us AND the wonderful foster parents who join us, to support all the children and young people in our care.  

So, whether you’re just starting out, or looking to build on existing experience, a career at Anchor offers you a wealth of opportunities.  

We offer a range of rewarding roles, each of which help to make a real difference to a young person’s life. And if that’s not enough you can also expect a friendly team, supportive management, opportunities to develop, plus flexible and hybrid work options.
