Our Benefits

We appreciate the difference our Colleagues make to our Residents’ lives every single day, so, as the Kind Care Company, it is important that our team feels valued and appreciated.

At HC-One, we provide a reward and benefits package that not only recognises the kind care you deliver to our Residents, but also has your wellbeing at heart. In addition, you will have access to additional rewards and benefits as you progress your career with us.

Pay That Progresses With You

HC-One is a sector leader in providing transparent pay structures, enabling our Colleagues to progress within a clearly defined salary scale.

We also pay all our Colleagues above the National Living Wage rates.

Free Uniform, DBS and Professional Fees

Our care home Colleagues will receive free uniforms and we will also reimburse any annual NMC/SSSC fees during your employment with HC-One.

When you start working with us, we will cover the cost of your DBS check, and we will also provide indemnity insurance for all Nurses and Home Managers.

Free Meals

All our care home Colleagues working shifts of six hours or more will receive a nutritious meal on us.


All Colleagues have access to a pension scheme, helping you save for your retirement after caring for so many others. Furthermore, as you progress with us, you will benefit from improved contributions from HC-One.

Flexible Working

Whether you work in one of our homes, in our support office, or out in the field we provide flexible working opportunities for our Colleagues. This includes working part time, on bank contracts where you decide when to work, or student contracts, enabling you to gain experience in the care sector while you study.


We appreciate everyone needs a break from time to time, and at HC-One you can access your holidays from the day you start working with us. Our online rostering tool makes planning your holidays easier for both you and your manager.

Recognition Awards

At HC-One, kindness is at the heart of everything we do, and we are committed to recognising the kind efforts of our Colleagues.

Our Kindness in Care Awards programme enables Colleagues to nominate others for acts of kindness, with winners receiving an award.

Long Service Awards

As you progress in your career, HC-One is there to celebrate your key milestones and achievements with you. Our Long Service Awards are presented to Colleagues in recognition of their service with us.

Recommend a Friend

Once you join the HC-One family, you may know someone who would make a great addition to our kind care team, so why not recommend them to us? If they do join our team, not only will they benefit from this great range of Colleague benefits, but you could also receive between £250 and £1,000 as a thank you.

Discounts and Cashback Schemes

All Colleagues can benefit from hundreds of online and high street discounts via our own Colleague discount and cashback platform, helping make every penny go further. You will also be eligible to apply for the Blue Light Service discount scheme.

Learning and Development

It’s simple, we want you to be the best that you can be! That’s why we support hundreds of our Colleagues every year in achieving nationally recognised qualifications, helping them develop the skills required not only to further their career, but to deliver the quality of care our Residents deserve.

Life Assurance

Every one of our Colleagues is offered life assurance from day one of their journey with us. While we hope this benefit will never be needed, we provide peace of mind that your family will receive financial support when they need it most.

Employee Assistance Programme

Our Employee Assistance Programme is available 24/7 should you need confidential and independent advice on anything from legal or personal matters to health issues or work-related problems. Professional counselling services are accessible both online or over the phone.

Free 24/7 GP Access

All Colleagues have access to an online wellbeing and fitness app, which also gives you, and your children aged below 16, access to unlimited GP video consultations via a national network of GPs.

Private Medical Insurance

If you join us in a management role, or progress to a managerial position, you can access private medical cover. Our leading PMI cover gives peace of mind that you and your family can access specialists and consultants when you need them most.

Free Eye Tests

Need an eye test for work? We have got you covered. As a HC-One Colleague, you can get a free eye test on us and even receive a contribution towards any glasses you need to buy for use with display screen equipment.
