Our gender pay gap is based on a snapshot date of 5 April each year, as required by law. It currently stands at 2.7 per cent, which is significantly lower than the national average of 8.9 per cent. This reflects our ongoing work to try to ensure that the pay of our staff is not influenced by their gender.

The gender pay gap is the percentage difference between the average hourly earnings of men and women.  It is worked out in two different ways – the median, which is the middle point between the range of earnings; and the mean, which is the total earnings divided by the number of men and women.
