ILC-UK is pleased to announce that we are an accredited London Living Wage Employer.

Our Living Wage commitment means that everyone who either works directly for us or as third-party contracted staff receives a minimum hourly wage of £9.75.

The real Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually by the Living Wage Foundation. The Living Wage is calculated according to the real costs of living.

Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said:

“We welcome the ILC-UK to the Living Wage movement as an accredited employer.

Responsible businesses across the UK are voluntarily signing up to pay the real Living Wage now. The real Living Wage rate is annually calculated to reflect the real costs of living.

We are a movement of over 3000 UK employers who together want to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on. We have lots of small businesses as well as big household names like; IKEA, Aviva, Chelsea and Everton Football Clubs and many more.

These businesses recognise that the Living Wage accreditation is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like the ILC-UK join us, because they too believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay."
