This December Bury VCFA joined the growing number of VCSE organisations across the city region in signing up as a supporter of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter.

Founded in 2019 as an initiative from the Mayor of Greater Manchester, the voluntary membership and assessment scheme is for improving employment standards to deliver good jobs – where employees are treated appropriately, offered inclusive opportunities, and paid fairly within the Greater Manchester area. The Charter’s tiered structure of Supporters and Members works to establish and instate seven characteristics of Good Employment. These include providing employees with a Real Living Wage, offering wellbeing support, and fair and flexible working and recruitment approaches.

Helen Tomlinson, Chief Officer at Bury VCFA: “Part of Bury VCFA’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for local people. We want to ensure we play our part as an employer in the borough as well as encouraging and supporting the VCSE sector in Bury to sign up to the Good Employment Charter to improve the experience of its employees whilst also supporting economic growth and community wealth-building.”

Bury VCFA is establishing a peer support network of VCSE employers within the borough to join them on their journey to Good Employment Charter Member status. If you are interested in being involved, contact
