Charles Edward are a Living Wage Employer
We are delighted to announce that we are now an accredited Living Wage Employer! This means that every member of staff working for us will earn a real Living Wage.
The real Living Wage is higher than the government’s minimum, or National Living Wage, and is an independently calculated hourly rate of pay that is based on the actual cost of living. It is calculated each year and is announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week. It is currently £9.00 in the UK, with a higher rate of £10.55 for London, reflecting the higher costs of living in the capital.
Over 4,700 organisations, including Charles Edward Limited, voluntarily choose to pay the real Living Wage because we believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. You can find other organisations who pay the Living Wage here: https://www.livingwage.org.uk/living-wage-map
This commitment applies to not only directly employed staff but also to our third party contracted staff. We have a plan in place to ensure that all our third party contracted staff are paid the real Living Wage.
Our commitment to our staff was recently recognised by the CN Talent Awards, who have shortlisted us in the ‘Best Place to Work’ category.
