Positive steps to close our gender pay gap

We are pleased to publish our gender pay gap report which shows that we’re closing our pay gap*.

In 2018 our pay gap has reduced to 14.1% which is an improvement from 20.8% in 2017. This also compares favourably with the national median pay gap of 17.9% provided by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).

Our Executive Director for People and Change, Karen Rosser, said: “It’s a really positive step that we’ve reduced our pay gap by 6.7% in the last 12 months.

“Due to the nature of our work, females make up the majority of our frontline workforce. This follows a similar pattern in the care and support industry as a whole and helps to explain our pay gap; although women are well represented at senior and middle manager levels in our organisation, they also hugely outnumber men in lower-paid frontline roles.

“We recognise that a gap still exists and we will continue to address this over the next year by focusing on four key areas including talent development, inclusion, creating a new toolkit for managers as well as recruitment and selection.”
