Sefton CVS is now an accredited Living Wage Employer
We are delighted to announce that Sefton CVS is now an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means that every member of staff working for Sefton CVS 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 £9.90 in the UK, with a higher rate of £11.05 for London, reflecting the higher costs of living in the capital.
Over 9000 organisations, including Sefton CVS, 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 any third party contracted staff.
We are really proud of this commitment!
