Information

Gender Pay Gap Report 2017

We are an employer required by law 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 employee’s data.

We are required to publish the results on our own website and a government website.

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

With the company’s median hourly rate at 4.30%, this is significantly lower than the UK median.

For the same role, regardless of gender, all our hourly paid employees are paid the same hourly rate.

Our analysis shows that our Gender Pay gap is fairly equal across the organisation, however it shows in the upper quartile that we employ more male employee’s in the more technical roles, moving forward we can assess this gap on recruitment dependent on career choice.
