As an accredited Scottish Living Wage employer, the Festival cares about the rewards and conditions of employment and the well-being of staff and is committed to improving work-life balance of its staff. The Festival works with staff to put fair work practices at the heart of our workplace. The Festival applies its support of Fair Work First principles across all its work, with core team, freelance permanent staff and one-off performers and creatives.
St Magnus International Festival is committed to advancing the Fair Work First Policy through:
• Effective Voice – The Festival provides channels for effective employee engagement and holds regular 1-to-1 and all-staff team meetings either in person or via video conference medium. It also runs a ‘suggestion box’ policy for taking in ideas and allowing the staff voice opportunity on a constant basis.
• Fulfilment – The Festival recognises the challenges and complexities of busy working and personal lives through the provision of flexible and family friendly working practices that include appropriate and proportionate homeworking where possible.
• Opportunity – The Festival undertakes a fair and transparent recruitment process with all job opportunities advertised internally and invests in training for all its staff focusing on organisational priorities and individual personal development.
• Security – The Festival is an accredited Scottish Living Wage employer and is committed to paying the Real Living Wage. The Festival does not use, or issue zero-hour contracts and opposes the use of fire and rehire practice. SMIF is committed to assuring that any gender pay gap is identified and addressed as part of ongoing review in our Fair Work First Working Group.
• Respect – All Festival staff are entitled to be treated with respect and dignity at work and have a personal responsibility for ensuring that they treat others the way in which they would expect to be treated. The Festival recognises dignity at work to mean being free to work without experiencing, bullying, harassment, discrimination or victimisation.
