Living Wage Scotland was established in April 2014 by the Poverty Alliance with the aim of increasing the number of employers in Scotland who are recognised for paying their staff the real Living Wage. It is a partnership with Living Wage Foundation, with Scottish Government as a key funder.

The high profile campaign has been hugely successful in accrediting more than 3000 Living Wage employers in Scotland, who have delivered pay uplifts to the real Living Wage to more than 60,000 workers. Living Wage accreditation has delivered more than £365 million of extra wages to low paid workers in Scotland, and we have since our expanded our engagement with employers on additional schemes that support fair work.

The Living Wage Projects Officer will play a crucial role contributing to increasing our engagement with Scottish employers on a range of projects delivered through Living Wage Scotland that support fair work. Projects include Living Wage employer accreditation, Living Hours accreditation, Living Wage Places recognition and Living Pensions.

The post holder will support employers to enhance their participation with Living Wage Scotland activities and projects and will contribute to the development of processes to record impact and progress of projects as they expand.
