We’re delighted to say that Broadway has been accredited as a Living Wage Employer by Living Wage Foundation. Our Living Wage commitment ensures everyone working at Broadway receives a minimum hourly wage of at least £10.90, higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £10.42 per hour.
Broadway is based in the East of England, a region where over 11% of jobs pay less than the real Living Wage – around 288,000 jobs. Over 12,000 organisations, including Broadway, have voluntarily committed to pay the real Living Wage because we believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. This commitment applies not only to directly employed staff, but also to our third party contracted staff. Broadway has a plan in place to ensure that any third party contracted staff will also be paid the real Living Wage.
“I’m proud to work for a Living Wage Employer. Becoming a Living Wage Employer demonstrates a commitment to our people here at Broadway. Ensuring that our employees are paid a fair wage that reflects the cost of living and going someway to supporting them in challenging times.”

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 450,000 people and put over £2 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.
