Costa Coffee follows Pret a Manger with third staff pay rise in a year

Costa Coffee is to give its staff their third pay rise in a year, as rivals make similar moves amid a labour shortage. The announcement comes days after Pret A Manger said it was giving its staff a similar pay rise within the same time frame. Costa Coffee has around 1,520 company-owned branches across the UK. The coffee chain said the increase meant that all its staff would be paid at least £10.70 per hour - up from £10 - and amounts to a year-on-year increase of around 14% by the time the pay rise is implemented. Nick Orrin, Costa's interim UK and international managing director, said the pay rise would help staff who continue to live "During uncertain times". Costa Coffee also said that staff will receive pay bonuses linked to store performance, which were previously rewarded in vouchers.
