As an employer we are required to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

This involves carrying out six calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation; it will not involve publishing individual employees data.

We are required to publish the results on our own website and these results are set out below.

Gender Pay Gap Report 2019
(as at 30/06/2019)

Mean gender gap (males over females) 20.3%
Median gender gap (males over females) 4.2%
Mean bonus gender gap (males over females) 37.6%
Median bonus gender gap (males over females) 25.0%
Proportion of Females receiving bonus 27%
Proportion of Males receiving bonus 54%
Proportion of Males/Females in each Quartile Band
Salary Range Male Female
£23,970 – £138,896 67% 33%
£17,079 – £23,969 62% 38%
£7,654 – £17,078 41% 59%
£1,708 – £7,653 58% 42%

We can use these results to assess:

  • the levels of gender equality in our workplace.
  • the balance of male and female employees at different levels.
  • how effectively talent is being maximised and rewarded.

The challenge in our organisation and across Great Britain is to eliminate any gender pay gap.

We employ a large number of staff with the majority male, not due to any form of discrimination but through a rigorous and fair recruitment process employing the best talent available.
