Team members can earn up to £8.90 per hour reaching £9.60 per hour for supervisors.
Jean Michel Orieux, CEO of PAUL UK said, “We see the introduction of this increase as extremely positive and are pleased to be one of the first companies in the UK to adopt it. Anything that encourages people to take up a career in the hospitality industry can only be a good thing."
