French bakery and café brand Paul has increased its staff wages to the National Living Wage ahead of its introduction in April.

Staff across its 34 UK cafés will be paid £7.20 per hour as of 1 November. Team members can earn up to £8.90 per hour reaching £9.60 per hour for supervisors.

Jean Michel Orieux, chief executive 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.

“By paying the April rate ahead of many other hospitality businesses, we are showing our commitment to our existing employees and are confident this will attract new people to the business”.
