Melrose Education today became a Real Living Wage accredited employer.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate of pay, independently calculated each year based on the real cost of living in the UK and London.
Employers who are part of the scheme choose to go further than the government minimum, and voluntarily pay the real Living Wage to all of their staff including their contracted staff. This has meant a pay rise for over 150,000 employees and their families.
Tracey Storey, Executive Chair and CEO of Melrose Education said, “We are delighted to become an accredited Living Wage Employer as this underpins our generous salary structure and ensures our employees all receive a wage that reflects what they and their families actually need to live.”
