Thorntons’ director of people Shirley Phillips said: “At Thorntons, we have always focussed on creating a positive working environment where everyone is treated fairly. We value all of our colleagues, in every role, which is why we are delighted to be involved with the Living Wage programme.”

Peter Kelly, director of the Poverty Alliance said: “We are delighted to congratulate Thorntons Solicitors on becoming a Living Wage employer. I hope more organisations follow their lead by becoming accredited”.

Living Wage Scotland’s manager Jack Evans said: “We are delighted to welcome Thorntons, to the Living Wage movement.   

“We are a movement of over 1600 Scottish employers who together want to go further than the government minimum to make sure that all their staff earn enough to live on.

“We have lots of smaller employers as well as larger and iconic Scottish employers like SSE, Standard Life, Barrs, Mackies, ScotRail, and many more.”
