Pret A Manger to give staff second pay rise this year

Pret A Manger is to invest an additional £10 million in staff pay this year as it looks to help its UK workforce deal with the rising cost of living.

From 1 December 2022, all UK employees across its shops and support centre will receive a 5% rise which will be their second pay increase this year.

The move means that 8,600 shop staff, including team members, baristas and shop managers, will see an average baseline pay increase of 13% within a year. In addition, it will take the total Pret has invested in pay this year to almost £20 million to mark the company’s biggest pay investment in its 36-year history.

The 5% uplift will be applied to shop employees irrespective of age, although some differences may apply depending on role, experience and location. 

Guy Meakin, interim managing director at Pret A Manger UK & Ireland, said: “With the rising cost of living putting increased pressure on our people, we wanted to do more to support them, and to say thank you for continuing to go above and beyond for our customers.

“This will be the second year in a row we will have introduced a second pay rise in the same year for our employees, and we’re proud to be leading the industry on Barista pay. We aspire to always be a top employer, with all our employees earning well above the National Minimum Wage irrespective of age.”
