The 5% club

Crest Nicholson is a member of The 5% Club and has received the Gold Award which acknowledges the work we have undertaken to close the skills gap. The 5% Club is a movement of employers who are committed to have 5% of their workforce in earn and learn positions.

We are a Living Wage Employer

Crest Nicholson is accredited as a Living Wage Employer by the Living Wage Foundation. We are committed to ensuring all those who work directly or indirectly providing labour on our sites and in our offices are paid at or above the Real Living Wage as defined by the Living Wage Foundation.

The Real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their employees earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum.
