Pay rises for English and Welsh Hallmark staff

Hallmark Care Homes staff in England will be paid at or above the rate set by the Real Living Wage Foundation from 1 April 2021.  This means care worker salaries will now start from £9.50 per hour and £10.85 in London.

The increases adds £1,200 a year to the pay of English full-time workers outside London receiving the national minimum wage. For London full-time workers, the equivalent uplift is more than £4,000.

Welsh team member pay will be increased above the minimum wage to at least £9 per hour. This comes on top of a half million-pound bonus paid to all care home-based team members before Christmas with employees receiving on average £250 each.

Hallmark Care Homes Executive Chair Avnish Goyal said: “The pandemic has further shown the need for the care sector to be recognised as a skilled profession and be rewarded appropriately. These pay increases are another step in the right direction on our quest to achieve this.”
