Living Wage Employer Accreditation

Paul LevettNews

Levett Consultancy has been accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Our Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Levett Consultancy receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.00 in the UK. Both rates are significantly higher than the government minimum for over 25s, which currently stands at £7.83 per hour.

The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 160,000 people and put over £800m extra into the pockets of low paid workers. 

Tess Lanning, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that Levett Consultancy has joined the movement of over 4,700 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.
“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as IKEA, Heathrow Airport, Barclays, Chelsea and Everton Football Clubs and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Levett Consultancy, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
