Happy Living Wage, folks!
At Soundcastle we are very proud to be a living wage employer and advocate for fair and competitive pay for practitioners and staff in our sector. We are always seeking ways to ensure our team is best supported in terms of finance, community and professional development. Today we also celebrate our Kickstart programme – which is bringing new community music practitioners into Soundcastle – and enabling us to provide training placements paid at Living Wage rates.
We encourage all our peer organisations to look into this scheme and to ensure that teams are being paid in a way which ensures quality of life and wellbeing for all. https://www.livingwage.
Watch this space for updates on the progress of our soon to be recruited Kickstart team members! We’ll be excited to share who they are and how they’re getting on as part of Soundcastle.
As creative practitioners we need to keep advocating for better conditions for our sector and a foundation for this is ensuring pay at living wage where appropriate and higher wherever possible.
