DF Capital today announced that it has been accredited as a Living Wage Employer with a commitment that every employee will receive a salary that exceeds the minimum hourly wage of £9.50, compared with the National Living Wage, which currently stands at £8.72 per hour for over 25s.
The North West of England, where DF Capital is headquartered, is a region with a fifth (20%) of all jobs – equating to approximately 584,000 roles – paying less than the real Living Wage.
Carl D’Ammassa, CEO at DF Capital said: “As a growing employer in the North West of England, we are delighted to announce our commitment to being a Living Wage Employer. We believe that everyone deserves a living wage and we want to make sure that our employees know that they have an income that covers all of their everyday needs – they are, after all, at the heart of what we do. We pride ourselves on being a responsible and caring employer, that is supportive of our employees in not only their professional development but also their personal lives. Our commitment to the Living Wage is an important part of us building a sustainable and more equitable future.”
