What we offer

A CARE staff member visits a community in the Philippines rebuilding their homes following Typhoon Haiyan

CARE is committed to being as effective as possible, in order to achieve the greatest possible impact in our poverty-fighting work with poor and marginalised people and communities around the world. We are therefore committed to supporting our staff to achieve their full potential, and to make working for CARE a fulfilling and empowering experience.

Annual leave

During first year of service we offer 25 days annual leave. Thereafter from 1st July each year, the leave allowance increases by one day for each year worked up to a maximum of 30 days per year on completion of 5 years.

Pension

We operate auto-enrolment for all staff into our pension scheme with Royal London. Further details can be obtained from the HR team.

Health cash plan

We provide a health cash plan to employees based in the UK, provided through Simplyhealth. The cash plan offers money back on many everyday health care bills, such as visits to an optician, dentist or physiotherapist, up to annual limits. This benefit is available to staff upon completion of their probationary period.

Interest-free loans

Employees with at least three months continuous service are eligible for an interest-free loan to assist them in purchasing either:  an annual season ticket, or a gym membership (up to £500).

Childcare voucher scheme

Part of your monthly salary can be "sacrificed" in exchange for Childcare Vouchers.  Childcare Vouchers are exempt from Tax and National Insurance up to a certain amount per month per working parent, allowing them to be worth much more than paying for childcare by normal methods.

Education assistance

We are committed to supporting courses of study leading to professional qualifications that will meet organisational objectives.  Individuals can apply for assistance in two forms:  financial assistance and / or study leave assistance
