At SMS we highly value our people and the work they do. They look after our customers, drive operations and make the company the success that it is. We appreciate the hard work our team do, and feel they should be rightly rewarded, so that they can live and enjoy life.
This is why we have become an Accredited Real Living Wage employer, joining 4700 other UK businesses including BrewDog, Mackies Ltd, and the University of Aberdeen, who are also real Living Wage employers.
The real Living Wage is calculated according to the cost of living, based on a basket of household goods and services.

The real Living Wage is the minimum rate that we pay to all staff over 18 years of age, and in practice we can and do pay more.
All of our staff are valued for the skills and commitment that they bring to our business, and we believe that they should be afforded a good standard of living from their remuneration.
In return we offer a safe working environment, opportunities for staff to increase their skills and training, genuinely interesting work, and real opportunities for career and salary progression. SMS is proud to become a real Living Wage employer.
