We pride ourselves on our team – our colleagues are at the forefront of everything we do. We are incredibly proud to work for a social enterprise that makes such an incredible impact on people’s lives both through our work and the values we uphold.
We can choose to donate a percentage of our monthly salary to Wise Aid, our charity fund, which is then shared amongst beneficiaries chosen by us. In the past, we have donated to a wide range of causes, including Glasgow South West Food Bank, The British Heart Foundation, The Little Princess Trust and Lomond Mountain Rescue.
We run our own food bank to serve the community. The food bank is maintained by donations from across our team, who are encouraged to bring an item or donate £1 each Friday, which goes towards keeping the food bank topped up.
We’re also given reasonable paid time off to volunteer to support charitable organisations, make use of our skills outside of work, improve our health and well-being or develop ourselves professionally.
We’ve also got a partnership with Glasgow charity MCR Pathways, which supports disadvantaged young people in schools to improve their lives. 10% of our team are given the chance to become mentors to help young people during their working hours.
The Modern Slavery Act (the ‘Act’) became law on 26 March 2015. Section 54 of the Act, ‘Transparency in Supply Chains’, requires every organisation carrying on a business in the UK with a total annual turnover of £36m or more to produce an annual Statement; setting out the steps they have taken to tackle slavery and human trafficking in their organisation and supply chains.

"I’ve spent a lifetime in public service and can honestly say I’d have been proud to know someone on my teams over the years who conducted themselves as mannerly, considerate and tolerant as you. You are a credit to your organisation and indeed the people of this fine country."
