Job Details

The Living Wage is an independent movement of businesses, organisations and people who believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. The Living Wage campaign was launched by London Citizens in 2001 and aims to ensure low paid workers have enough money to get by and enough time for community and family life.

The Living Wage is an hourly rate calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK that employers choose to pay on a voluntary basis. The Living Wage Foundation recognises and celebrates employers that pay the real Living Wage through an accreditation programme which awards the Living Wage Employer Mark.

The independently-calculated rates are announced during Living Wage Week each November when we celebrate our growing network of Living Wage employers. There are now over 3000 accredited Living Wage employers across the UK which has secured pay rises for over 150,000 employees.


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 Friendly 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.
