UK Living Wage Increase for 2021/22
Since 2016 RSUA has sought to tackle the issue of fair pay for Part 1 graduates following some reports of unattractive and at times exploitative terms and conditions.
By 2021, 76 practices had signed up to the RSUA Commitments to Fair Pay for Part 1 Graduates. The headline commitment is to pay a minimum of the Real Living Wage as set by the Living Wage Foundation.
On 15 November 2021 it was announced that the recommended Real Living Wage will increase from £9.50 an hour to £9.90 an hour and that employers should implement this increase by no later than 15 May 2022. Click here to read the updated RSUA Commitments to Fair Pay for Part 1 Graduates.
The RSUA is keen to extend the uptake of these commitments. If your organisation is not currently listed in our register of committed practices but you support the commitments please contact Jude Faloon by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org This set of commitments applies equally to private sector and public sector employers.
