The Living Wage Foundation was launched in 2011 by Citizens UK to tackle in-work poverty and ensure that workers earn enough to live on and participate in family and community life. Citizens UK is the home of community organising with diverse civil society alliances set up to develop leaders to work on the issues that matter to them, such as the Living Wage. Other projects include PACT (Parents and the Community Together) and Sponsor Refugees to add depth to the impact of Citizens UK’s work.
The Living Wage is a movement of businesses, organisations and people who believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. The real Living Wage is an independently-calculated hourly rate based on the cost of living and announced each November during Living Wage Week, our annual celebration of a growing network of nearly 7,000 Living Wage Employers.
The Living Wage Foundation celebrates employers that voluntarily choose to pay the real Living Wage through an accreditation scheme that recognises a long-term commitment to fair pay and has secured pay rises for 250,000 low paid workers.
The Living Wage Foundation has an exciting opportunity to join our dynamic team as a Programme Manager. We are looking for a highly motivated and organised individual with the ability to build relationships with employers to grow the Living Wage network, to develop projects that will grow our accreditations schemes and proactively influence change.
• Build and manage relationships with employers to support them to pay the real Living Wage and seek accreditation.
• Create, develop and employ the tools and knowledge available to inform and advise employers on implementing the Living Wage throughout their organisation.
• Communicate evidence for change to influence key stakeholders to become Living Wage employers, recognised Service Providers or Living Wage Funders and to champion the Living Wage to their networks.
• Monitor and evaluate the impact of our work to refine our strategy and deliver projects in an efficient way.
