CMM accredited as Living Wage Employer

Published on 7th of December, 2023

We're excited to announce that we have been accredited as a Living Wage Employer. As one of the South Island’s leading social service organisations, we employ 288 staff in Christchurch, Blenheim, Nelson and the West Coast.

“I’m proud that CMM has become a Living Wage employer,” says CMM Executive Director Jill Hawkey. “Over the past few years our leadership and governance teams have worked hard to ensure that all of CMM’s employees and service providers are adequately compensated for their work, and that they work in a safe and rewarding environment.”

“Paying the Living Wage gives workers more financial security, leading to better wellbeing," says Gina Lockyer, the Living Wage Movement's Executive Director. "Employees feel happier at work, and at home. In a service like CMM, this will have a ripple effect on their communities and every person they serve."
