Shop TJC has announced it will increase its wages for all entry level employees from £8.89 to £10 an hour which is 12% over the minimum wage prescribed in the recent budget which will come into effect April 2021.
The e-retailer which specialises in jewellery, gemstones, and other lifestyle accessories claimed the pay rise will pertain to all entry level employees in operations, customer service and production.
Furthermore, the retailer will also give its employees in operations and production a “one off bonus” of £250 and respective supervisors and managers will receive £500.
Additionally, the company has decided to give all employees an extra day off to help boost their well-being having recognised the challenges faced during the pandemic and the need to attend to mental health and well-being this coming year.
Srikant Jha, managing director at Shop TJC, said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to say that if you work at TJC you will earn at least £10 an hour. This initiative represents another step in TJC being a ‘Great Place to Work’.
“We felt these bonuses were not only about thanking our staff but also a way to recognise their commitment to the business, providing essential products and entertainment to our viewers across the UK during the tough Covid-19 pandemic.”
