‘Working for you’ to become 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 or our Clients 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 £9.50 in the UK, with a higher rate of £10.85 for London, reflecting the higher costs of living in the capital.

Nearly 7000 organisations 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 ensure that we pay and/or have a plan in place to ensure that all our third party contracted staff, such as our cleaners are paid the real Living Wage.

We are proud of this commitment and would love you to share the good news with you.

Annie Whelan, Head of AGS Support Services

“Receiving this accreditation will go a long way, ensuring that our plan for all staff, either directly or through our third-party Clients receive an acceptable living wage demonstrable of all their hard work and commitment. This is only fair and right. We look forward to working with our Clients, putting our employees first in receiving a real wage.
