Accredited Living Wage Employer

Our Commitment to Fair Pay

We are proud to announce that JR Roofing Lancs Limited has been accredited as a Living Wage Employer. This commitment ensures that everyone working with us receives a minimum hourly wage of £12. This rate is higher than the current government minimum wage for over 21s, which stands at £11.44 per hour.

Our decision is driven by our dedication to our employees and the local community. In the North West, where we are based, 13.5% of jobs pay less than the real Living Wage, affecting around 397,000 workers. Despite this, we are determined to lead by example and offer fair compensation for hard work.

What is the Real Living Wage?

The real Living Wage is the only wage rate in the UK calculated based on the actual cost of living. It serves as a voluntary benchmark for employers who want to ensure their staff earn enough to live on, not just survive. Since its inception in 2011, the Living Wage movement has given over 460,000 people a pay rise and added £3 billion to the earnings of low-paid workers.

Recognition from the Living Wage Foundation

Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation, expressed her delight at our accreditation: “We’re thrilled that JR Roofing Lancs Limited has joined the movement of over 14,000 responsible employers across the UK. These employers voluntarily commit to go beyond the government minimum to ensure all their staff earn enough to live on. They join thousands of small businesses and well-known names such as Burberry, Barclays, and Everton Football Club. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer.”

The Impact of Our Commitment
