Costa announces an average 6.7% pay rise for over 16,000 UK store team members
Costa Coffee has announced that it will be upping pay rates for team members across its 1,520 UK company-owned stores.
Hourly wages are set to increase by between 6.1% and 7.3%, excluding bonuses, with effect from 1 April 2023.
This means pay for the company’s baristas will rise from £10 per hour to at least £10.70 per hour, whilst more experienced barista maestros will see an uplift from £10.53 to at least £11.23 per hour, depending on their location and role.
Nick Orrin, Cost Coffee interim UK & Ireland managing director, said: “Our expert baristas are at the heart of our business and the communities we serve, and we are proud to be rewarding their amazing work. This increase reflects everything they continue to do for our customers to make their day that little bit better.”
Costa said all store team members, regardless of age, will receive at least £10.70 per hour.
This is the third time that Costa has increased its pay rates in the last 12 months during which time the company’s base rate of pay has risen from £9.36 to £10.70 per hour to mark an increase of over 14%.
Orrin added: “We continue to live in uncertain times, but we are passionate about putting our teams and communities first. By always investing in our stores and our teams, we can give everyone a little boost each time they step inside their local Costa Coffee.”
