We are proud to have received accreditation as a Living Wage employer.  This commitment ensures everyone working at RCSEd receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.90 per hour. This new Living Wage rate was announced on Monday 15th November 2021 as part of Living Wage Week, and is significantly higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £8.91 per hour.

In Scotland, more than 14% of all jobs pay less than the real Living Wage - around 330,000 jobs.

The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate calculated according to the costs of living. Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis, recognising the value of their workers and ensuring that a hard day’s work receives a fair day’s pay.

Lynn Anderson, Living Wage Scotland Manager said:

We’re delighted that RCSEd has become an accredited Living Wage employer. They join a growing movement of over 1900 employers in Scotland who together want to ensure workers have what they need to thrive.

Our Living Wage employer network includes lots of smaller employers as well as larger and iconic brands like SSE, abrdn, Barrs, Mackie’s of Scotland, & D.C. Thomson. We hope to see many more employers following their example.
