We are required to publish calculations that display and help explain any gender pay gap
The average gender pay gap is expressed as a percentage of men's earnings. A positive percentage figure shows that, typically or overall, men are paid more. A negative pay gap indicates that women are paid more.
|Gender||Mean average hourly rate of pay||Gender pay gap|
The mean average gender pay gap that we reported last year was 4.97%
The mean average is useful because it takes into account the low and high earners and gives a good overall indication of the gender pay gap. However, very large or small rates of pay can dominate and distort the calculation.
|Gender||Median average hourly rate of pay||Gender pay gap|
The median average gender pay gap that we reported last year was -7.24%
By identifying the wage of the middle earner, the median is considered the best representation of the typical gender difference.
The bonus pay gap calculation includes all bonus payments made between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2019.
Our Pay Policy has no provision for bonus payments. However, a one-off discretionary honorarium payment can be made to employees that demonstrate an exceptional level of performance. Such payments, while extraordinary and therefore infrequent, have been determined as meeting the definition of bonus pay under gender pay gap legislation.
The proportion of men and women receiving bonuses: 0% of male employees received a one-off honorarium payment when compared to 2.3% of female employees.
As there were no one-off honorarium payments made to males in the reporting year calculating a percentage difference is not possible.
The table below shows the proportion of male and female members of staff when divided into four equal sections based on their hourly rate of pay.
