We’re always looking for ways to make Titus an even better place to work.
Whether that’s through allocating a dedicated training budget for all of our team members or encouraging flexible working, our team is at the forefront of everything we do and at the heart of our successes thereafter.
Some of the initiatives we’ve adopted recently include providing our team members with a minimum of £400 to use on career development each year. We’re also committed to more significant funding for specialist qualifications if relevant to their role. To tie in with this, Titus employees are able to take an extra day of leave every month to commit to professional development.
Aside from that, we’ve allocated £100 to everyone for personal development outside of work. It could pay for anything from cooking classes to purchasing books, a photography lesson to driving lessons.
With that in mind, we’re proud to announce that we’ve achieved accreditation as a Living Wage Employer from the Living Wage Foundation.
Since 2011, the Living Wage movement has seen pay increases for over 200,000 people with an estimated £1 billion extra in the pockets of those on minimum wage. It’s helped many people increase their quality of living, so it was a natural initiative for us to support.
Although we were already paying the Living Wage, gaining this accreditation is an official commitment to offering all our employees rates of pay that are calculated against the cost of living, rather than the government’s minimum wage. This means that anyone who works for us will receive £9.30 per hour at a very minimum, regardless of their job role or location.
The government’s minimum wage currently stands at £8.20 per hour for people aged 18 – 24 or £8.72 per hour for over 25’s.
Seb Francis, Co-founder and Director of Titus said “Becoming a Living Wage Employer was a natural step for us as a culture. Over the past year, we’ve more than doubled our team and we’re committed to making sure that they feel valued and enjoy working at Titus.”
“We’re constantly looking for ways to ensure that we can nurture our team, whether that’s a fair rate of pay or a commitment to creating an environment where they can continue to learn and develop.”
