Direct employees

There are no staff directly employed by DFID who are paid less than the Living Wage as defined by the Living Wage Foundation.

Outsourced workers

DFID considers the rate of pay for outsourced workers to be an issue for contractors. We encourage outsource partners to pay the Living Wage as defined by the Living Wage Foundation. None of our contracted workers are paid less than the National Living Wage and London Living Wage.

Workers in agencies which report to DFID

There are no staff in agencies which report to DFID who are paid less than the Living Wage as defined by the Living Wage Foundation.
