More than 50 charities sign up to Show the Salary diversity in recruitment campaign

The Show the Salary campaign, to promote equity, inclusion and diversity in voluntary sector recruitment, has almost doubled the number of charities backing its messaging in just two weeks.

The number of charities to sign up as of 19 October is now 55. At the end of last month 28 charities had signed up to the campaign, which warns that salary secrecy can fuel wage gaps and discrimination.

Those that sign up pledge not to promote roles as having a “competitive salary” and reveal the salary of each role.

Among charities adding their support this month include the National Emergencies Trust. The charity’s chief operating officer Mhairi Sharp said: “To create a fairer sector and society, we need to eliminate any potential practices that could stand in the way of that.

“Salary transparency is a simple, but powerful step forward that any organisation can take, which is why we’re supporting and promoting the #ShowTheSalary pledge.

Blood Cancer UK, Friends of the Earth and Plan International are among others to support the campaign.

Another to sign up is children in care and care leavers charity Become.

“As the national charity for children in care and care leavers, Become is committed to tackling inequality and helping build a fairer, kinder society where care experienced children and young people can achieve their potential, said Become chief executive Katharine Sacks-Jones.

“We pledge to always #ShowTheSalary when we recruit for roles in order to promote equity, inclusion and transparency. We’ll keep reviewing and improving our recruiting processes to ensure we’re attracting the best talent, helping build a more diverse and representative charity and delivering the best outcomes for care experienced young people.”

Save the Children, Birthrights, Anthony Nolan and Teenage Cancer Trust were among those who signed up last month.
