» Perth High School Business Ambassadors

Blaine Wood, a fourth year pupil at Perth High School, has been working with the Meldrum team one day per week for the last two months, gaining valuable work experience. He will continue to work with us until the end of the summer term, through participation in the High School’s Introduction to Work programme. Blaine hopes to gain a joinery apprenticeship after he leaves school and we are sure with both his positive attitude to work and enthusiasm for the job, he would certainly have every chance . Derek Petterson and Gavin Maclean, both ex Perth High School pupils, are Ambassadors of the programme and are delighted with Blaine’s progress, even turning up for work when it was an in-service day at school! Blaine is pictured with some of the team at Rosemary House.

» Proud to be a Living Wage Employer

As a Living Wage employer, we are committed to going above and beyond for our employees. For us, being a responsible employer means every one of our employees earning a wage that is independently calculated to be enough for them and their families to live on, not just the government minimum. At the heart of the Living Wage movement is a simple idea that a fair day's work deserves a fair day's pay.
