Living wage accreditation

Lead Scotland is very pleased to be an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means that Lead Scotland voluntarily pays the living wage to all its employees and sub-contractors. 

We are committed to advancing the Fair Work First criteria, including the real Living Wage and we provide appropriate channels for effective workers’ voice, including line management, staff surveys and staff are free to join a union. 

Lead Scotland CEO Emma Whitelock said, ‘We are delighted to be involved with a movement of thousands of organisations, businesses and people, across Scotland and the whole of the UK, who believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.  I am proud of the work and commitment our employees deliver on a daily basis and I believe we owe it to each employee and their families to make sure they have enough to cover their living costs’.
