Social Security Scotland achieves Living Wage accreditation

We are delighted to have been formally recognised as a Living Wage Employer, joining 1,550 other employers in Scotland who are going further than the Scottish Government minimum.

This demonstrates our commitment to paying all our directly employed staff and subcontracted workers over the age of 18 the real Living Wage.

Director of the Poverty Alliance, Peter Kelly said:

“The real Living Wage is an important benchmark for wages that can help address in-work poverty in Scotland. There is a strong business case for paying the real Living Wage; but crucially it allows those in work to become more included in society, better provide for their families, and feel that their value and hard work is recognised by their employer. We are delighted to congratulate Social Security Scotland on becoming a Living Wage employer. I hope more organisations follow their lead by becoming accredited.”
