Specialist tech marketing agency Sherpa Marketing celebrates commitment to real living wage.

Sherpa Marketing has recently become accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Our Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Sherpa Marketing receive a minimum hourly wage in excess of the current minimum wage across the UK. The rates Sherpa Marketing pay are significantly higher than the government minimum.

The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 200,000 people and put over £1Billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.


"Our people are our business and we value them and believe that should be reflected in what they earn. We strongly support initiatives like the Living Wage that are committed to protecting employees" - Tom Perry, CEO


Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that Sherpa Marketing has joined the movement of nearly 6,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.

“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as LUSH, Heathrow Airport, Barclays, West Ham Football Club and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Sherpa Marketing, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay."
