Rambert Becomes 3000th Living Wage Accredited Employer


8th March 2017

BID member Rambert, the internationally acclaimed dance house and tenant of Coin Street Community Builders has become the 3000th Living Wage accredited employer.

The Living Wage is a voluntary rate, which is independently calculated according to the basic cost of living. Currently, the Living Wage is set at £9.75 an hour for employees working in London, and £8.45 an hour for staff who work across the UK.Rambert Living Wage South Bank BID Business Improvement District London


Living Wage Foundation director Katherine Chapman said: “Reaching 3,000 employers is a historic milestone for the Living Wage campaign – a third of the FTSE 100, household names like Ikea, Aviva and Google as well as thousands of small employers are now signed up to show their commitment to a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work.”

A number of South Bank businesses such as St, Johns at Waterloo, Coin Street Community Builders and Ogilvy and Mather are accredited employers and South Bank BID will continue to work with the Living Wage Foundation to ensure that our area attracts motivated and skilled employees into the local area.

South Bank BID and the Living Wage Foundation have been working with London Citizens, the London branch of national charity Citizens UK, to identify the benefits of bringing the Living Wage to the local business community in South Bank. Living Wage South Bank is the result of our collaboration. It’s a research project that is focussed on discovering the interest in and barriers to Living Wage accreditation. This research involves interviewing consumers, residents and businesses in order to understand the differing perspectives on bringing the Living Wage to South Bank.

We will be hosting a business seminar on 31st March which will discuss the issues discovered through our research so far. We’ll also invite key business speakers and leading academic researchers who will be on hand to answer questions and share their experience. This is an open event and all are welcome; you can book your ticket here.
