Four things to do now you’ve joined the Living Wage Campaign

Have you just signed up to the Brighton & Hove Living Wage Campaign?  

Whether you’re new to the campaign (or just want a reminder on how to shout about being a Living Wage employer) we’ve put together our four things to get you started, now you’ve signed up. 

1. Update your branding  

A quick and easy one for starters!  

Add our Brighton & Hove Living Wage employer logo to your website, email signature, job adverts – anywhere you think other businesses (or prospective employees) will spot it. 

You can download a copy of the Brighton & Hove Living Wage employer logo from our website here (you’ll need to be logged in to your account).  

If you have a shop, or hospitality business, let us know and we can send you a sticker for your window, and some postcards.

It’s worth noting here, that 80% of Living Wage employers find being signed up to the campaign has a direct impact on their recruitment and retention. So include that you’re a Living Wage employer across your marketing, website and communications, as well as in any job adverts if you’re hiring.

2. Let your network know  

How does being a Living Wage employer fit into your business’ brand?  

Odds are, if you’ve signed up to the campaign, you’re doing it because it’s the right thing to do – but it also likely fits into your business’ ethos and values.  

Let your network know you’ve joined the campaign – share it on social, and you could even get your team to talk about why it’s important and impactful for them. Who knows, it might encourage others to join the campaign too.  

Find us, follow us, and tag us, on: 



And the Brighton Chamber Instagram page. 

3. Get featured on our blog  

We want to profile the employers in Brighton & Hove that are making our city a great place to work and do business. From why being a Living Wage employer is important to you; to how it impacts your staff; and what’s going on in your business right now.  

It could be an interview blog, a thought piece, or something different with a few people in your team.  

Get in touch to let us know if you’d like to be featured on our blog.  

4. Make sure your profile is up to date  

It can be easy to leave a profile hanging – but 2/3rds of all Brighton & Hove Living Wage employers take into account whether a business is a Living Wage employer when they’re looking for new collaborators or suppliers. And where do you think they go to find out if your business is a Living Wage employer?  

Their first place to look will be our directory, so making sure your profile is up to date helps other businesses know you’re actively engaged with the campaign – and it might even help connect you with a new client or collaborator.  

Update your profile by logging in here. If you need a hand with logins, pop us an email and we can give you a hand.
