Festival Spotlight: Intent at Arcadia Spectacular
Fire, flying and beats
The Living Wage Foundation is pleased to announce that Intent Productions, has today accredited as a Living Wage Employer – Subscribing to the London Living Wage Rate.
Their Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Intent Productions, regardless of whether they are direct employees or third-party contracted staff; receive a minimum hourly wage of £8.75 in the UK or £10.20 in London. Both rates are significantly higher than the statutory minimum for over 25s of £7.50 per hour introduced in April 2017.
The real Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the real costs of living.
Dan Leake, Managing Director, Intent Productions Ltd said:
“Being a responsible employer in London we felt it only fair to ensure that our staff got the recommended London Living Wage, as set every year by the Living Wage Foundation. We are delighted to be able to commit to this and hope to see other businesses in our sector do the same. Event work is hard work and should be rewarded with pay that will enable people to live to a good standard within the city that they work”
Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis. The Living Wage enjoys cross- party political support.
Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We welcome Intent Productions Ltd to the Living Wage movement as an accredited employer.
“Responsible businesses across the UK are voluntarily signing up to pay the real Living Wage now. The real Living Wage rate is annually calculated to reflect the real costs of living.”
“We are a movement of over 3700 UK employers who together want to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on. We have lots of small businesses as well as big household names like; IKEA, Aviva, Chelsea and Everton Football Clubs and many more.
These businesses recognise that the Living Wage accreditation is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Intent Productions join us, because they too believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
