New leader of campaign for living wage


A former St. Helier Deputy has been appointed to lead the Jersey Living Wage campaign.

Jennifer Bridge, who was previously the acting Education Manager for the States of Jersey Prison Service, the Chairman of Jersey Literary Festival Association, and a lay member of the Employment Tribunal, will start work with Caritas Jersey on 1 May.

The group recently announced the Jersey Living Wage rate as £10.55 per hour. 

Jennifer Bridge said: “I am thrilled to be involved with this campaign to encourage employers to pay the living wage and I’m delighted to not only be here to encourage employers to sign up but also to research the challenges that employers face in meeting the financial requirements of the living wage.

"At the heart of everything I do is a desire for fairness and inclusivity. The living wage encapsulates both those aims.”
