Techniquest is a real living wage employer

November 17, 2021

Techniquest is delighted to announce that we have received accreditation as a Living Wage Employer.

This means that every member of staff working for Techniquest will earn a real Living Wage.

The Real Living Wage is higher than the government’s minimum, or National Living Wage, and is an independently calculated hourly rate of pay that is based on the actual cost of living.

It is calculated each year and announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week. This year it will go up by 4% to £9.90 per hour.

Over 7,000 organisations, including Cardiff University, Keep Wales Tidy, Careers Wales, Cardiff Castle, Wales Millennium Centre and Visit Wales, voluntarily choose to pay the real Living Wage because we believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.

You can find other organisations who pay the Living Wage here.

FAQs

  •   What is Techniquest?

    Techniquest is an educational charity, with a science centre in Cardiff Bay. Our mission is to embed science in Welsh culture through interactive engagement.

  •   Where can I park?

    We are pleased to be able to offer all of our visitors discounted parking with Q-Park, our preferred parking partner.

    The Q-Park operates the Cardiff Bay car park in Pierhead Street which is around 8 minutes walk from Techniquest.

    We have agreed a special discount rate for our customers of 15% off all pre-bookings.

    There are also nearby pay-and-display car parks on Stuart Street and Havannah Street. Please do not park on Havannah Street itself.

    We regret that there is no parking on-site at Techniquest.
