It’s important to note that the gender pay gap is different from equal pay. Equal pay is about men and women receiving equal pay for the same jobs or similar jobs of equal value.

The gender pay gap shows the difference between the average hourly earnings of men and women across a company regardless of their roles. The outcomes can be affected by a range of factors including the ratio of men to women in the workforce and the number of full-time vs part-time men and women.


Next Steps

Whilst we are pleased that our mean gender pay gap is lower than the UK average of 17.9%, we are not complacent and will be actively looking to see how we can make improvements.


Recruitment, we will

Ensure that we continue to select the right person for the job through a fair and balanced process.


Development opportunities, we will

Ensure that merit alone determines who our future leaders are.

Continue to embed our personal development and performance management program into the culture of our business to support individuals to achieve their potential and career aspirations.

Ensure that all employees have the same access to training and development opportunities.


Workforce diversity, we will

Monitor diversity data to identify areas of potential concern and develop actions to address these.

Develop policies to help remove barriers that employees with family commitments sometimes face in advancing their careers.

Explore the opportunity to encourage more females into our senior roles by reviewing the need for them to be in full-time positions.
