International Timber has increased the minimum rate of pay for its employees ahead of the Government’s introduction of the National Living Wage in April.

The firm will also support young people more and have extended the minimum wage increase to employees over the age of 21 rather than age 25 recommended by the Government.

The announcement by International Timber signifies their commitment to getting more young people into the business and supporting them to develop their careers.

Ross Baxter of International Timber said: “At International Timber our employees play a vital role in making our customer service the best it can be.

“Our colleagues are the face of our brand and the greeting our customers get each day.  With that in mind, we’ve increased the minimum employee’s hourly rate of pay ahead of the Government’s introduction of the National Living Wage in April 2017.  But we took the decision to go beyond the National Living Wage so will be paying all of our employees at least £7.80 per hour.

“Salary is just part of the benefits package all our employees can access. They also include: the opportunity to buy and sell holidays, a discounted bicycle through our cycle to work scheme for the health conscious as well as a childcare voucher scheme for parents.

“We also offer a pension scheme with excellent life insurance cover and a money saving range of discounts through our reward website.”
