At Fabweld we appreciate our employees and we want to look after them, which is why we are committed to paying at least the Real Living Wage for everyone.
The Real Living Wage is set by the Living Wage Foundation and has just seen a significant increase, to £13.15 per hour in London and £12 for the rest of the UK, a rise of up to £3,000 a year.
Wayne Carter, managing director of Fabweld, said: “The people who work here at Fabweld are our greatest asset. We’re proud that the majority of our workforce started with us as either trainees or apprentices and have chosen to stay, so it’s right that we reward that loyalty.
“We are an accredited Real Living Wage employer, offering a competitive wage rate to our employees which reflects the real cost of living. The Living Wage is a voluntary rate used by more than 14,000 UK businesses, and it’s higher than both the Minimum Wage and the National Living Wage.
“It’s all part of our commitment to put people ahead of profits, and we are always trying to go further. By making efficiencies in our business, we can also offer other financial and in-kind benefits to staff to make life a little easier.
“The cost of living crisis has made the past year harder for everyone, so we are happy to do our bit to help everyone in the Fabweld family enjoy a reasonable standard of living.”
Some end users of Fabweld’s products, such as the National Grid, also insist that companies in their supply chain pay the Real Living Wage, providing a boost to more than half a million workers across the UK.
Due to a recent increase in work, FSP are expanding the business to create further jobs and are now actively looking to recruit part time staff and workers for afternoon positions.
