Placement Poverty Pledge

We the undersigned hereby agree:

/ That we have been guilty of paying them too little, and keeping
them on for too long, using them as a cheap source of labour.

/ That there is enough stress put on them to prove their
creative worth without the additional stress of struggling to survive.

/ That, given their importance to our industry, we need
to look after them better. As of now.


Therefore, we solemnly swear that, from January 2017:

 • We will pay placement teams the current London Living Wage
- at least £9.75 an hour, or £390 per week.
• We will pay them a freelance rate of £100 a day
after 3 months of service.
