Welcome to Salford City Mayor’s Employment Standards Charter accreditation and supporter network.

The Salford City Mayor's Charter for Employment Standards is designed to help raise employment standards for employees and businesses across the city.

We hope that businesses and employers across Salford will support the suit of pledges focused on:

  • Investing in Salford’s workforce
  • Equal and inclusive in Salford
  • The Salford Standard

By working together we will promote social inclusion, drive economic growth and raise living standards in our city.

The charter is open to any private sector business, public sector organisation, voluntary or community organisation and social enterprise working in Salford.

Over 100 employers have signed up to the charter since it was launched in November 2013.
