Description

The Living Wage Scotland Expo 2018 is the one date in the year where Living Wage employers from across Scotland can come together to network and celebrate their commitment to the real Living Wage. As this year's event also incorporates our Living Wage Scotland awards ceremony, it is also an opportunity to recognise and to hear about employers who are going "above and beyond" as champions of the real Living Wage in Scotland.

This year’s Living Wage Scotland Expo will be our biggest to date and will include:

  • Exhibition stands

  • Networking

  • The first ever Living Wage Scotland employer awards ceremony

  • A diverse range of speakers from business, workers, government and civil society

It is being held at the iconic Tynecastle Football Stadium, home to Scotland’s only accredited Living Wage football club: Heart of Midlothian
