Metrea Mission Data (MMD) has recently been accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Our Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at MMD receive a minimum hourly wage of £10.90 in the UK or £11.95 in London. Both rates are significantly higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £9.50 per hour.

At MMD we are experts in missionising and disseminating data; combining vast amounts of disparate data sets to provide valuable insights and analysis for our customers. Our deep-rooted knowledge of Tactical Data Links and Secure Networking allows us to serve these insights to where they will have the biggest impact.

The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to nearly 400,000 people and put over £2 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.

Owen Varley, Managing Director MMD, said “We are incredibly proud to be recognised as a Living Wage employer. We are committed to supporting the financial and mental wellbeing of our employees and being an employee of choice. Ensuring pay reflects the cost of living or more is a core element of this.

“It is only through the passion, enthusiasm and talent of our great employees that we are able to deliver our products to market and to delight our customers. We see the Living

Wage as a vital component of ensuring that our employees are properly valued at MMD”.

Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that MMD has joined the movement of almost 11,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.

“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as Burberry, Barclays, Everton Football Club and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like MMD, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
