EG Group has increased rates of pay will across all of its petrol stations and foodservice brands in the UK from 1 October 2021.
Every employee aged 18 and above will now be paid a minimum of £9.50 per hour and more experienced colleagues – such as team leaders and supervisors – will be paid a minimum of £10.00 per hour. The changes represent an average hourly wage increase of more than 5%.
Mohsin and Zuber Issa, co-founders and co-chief executives of EG Group, said: “Our colleagues have pulled out all the stops and been nothing short of heroic during often very difficult times since the start of the pandemic. It is due to their hard work and dedication that EG has continued to be a growth business, performing strongly over the past 12 months.
“We are grateful to each and every one of them for their contributions and are therefore making a total reward package available to them which we believe is amongst the best in the country.”
