We've voluntarily signed up to the Living Wage Foundation's scheme to become an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means our entire permanent, temporary, apprenticeship and contracted staff earn the higher hourly Living Wage rate rather than the government-mandated Minimum Wage.
Minimum Wage is currently set at £7.83 per hour. The Living Wage is £9 per hour for regional employees and £10.55 per hour for staff located in London. This rate is based on actual living costs and updated annually as part of the Living Wage Foundation's campaign to address working poverty.
Along with 4,700 leading companies as Living Wage Employers, we're demonstrating responsible leadership by actively taking a stand to close the gap between what people need to earn in order to live in today's society and the Minimum Wage as defined by government.
