Gender Pay gap Results 2019

The following charts detail our gender pay gap for UK (excluding Northern Ireland) workforce as of 5th April 2019 (pay) and in the 12 months up to 5th April (bonus). For prior year, please see the archive link at the end of this page.

Hourly Rate Gap

Bonus Gap
On average women are paid 28 percent less than men in our UK (excluding N.l.) workforce.
We are confident that women and men are largely paid the same for comparable roles. The overall difference in average earnings identified in this disclosure is due primarily to the underrepresentation of women in senior leadership posts and overrepresentation of women in non-managerial roles.

Bonus Gap

Hourly Rate Gap
Looking specifically at the average bonus gap between men and women, the difference is 32 percent. This is mostly driven by the underrepresentation of women in leadership roles and overrepresentation of women in non-managerial roles as noted above; more men are in senior positions and senior positions attract higher performance bonuses.

Proportion of males and females in each quartile band

Proportion of males and females in each quartile band
The population is divided into four equal parts or ‘quartiles’, from the lowest paid to the highest paid based on the calculated hourly pay rate. This breakdown of hourly rates by defined quartiles reflects the gender differences in our workforce, with a greater proportion of men in higher paid quartiles and a greater proportion of women in lower paid quartiles.
