Gender Pay Gap

Gender Pay Gap Report


As a recruitment company for the purposes of gender pay gap reporting it is necessary to include both our internal staff but also our temporary workers who are on assignment with our clients.

The inclusion of temporary workers within our pay gap information impacts greatly and distorts in certain areas due to varying sectors altering the overall mix and ratios of male to female, higher pay and lower paid roles based on industries or roles we are recruiting within. Pay rates and bonuses are also dictated by clients and other than the regulatory element required by Living wage, Minimum Wage and Agency Worker Regulations we can have no influence with regards to changing pay rates or implement changes to reduce the pay gap.

Overall there is no difference in pay between our male and female employees in similar roles within our permanent workforce, ie office staff and both female and male staff in sales roles are in receipt of bonus.

Male and female internal sales staff have equal opportunity to earn bonus and it is paid at the same levels. Bonus payments for temporary staff is dependent on our clients’ payment of bonus, but would apply to apply staff equally both male and female.

The following figures are inclusive of all employees, both permanent and temporary staff on assignment with our clients.

Mean gender pay Gap: 5.1%

On average women are paid 5.1 % lower than men

The differences in the mean pay gap are due to the hourly rates dictated by clients and the differing roles temporary workers are required to fill.

Median Gender pay gap: -8.9%

Mean bonus pay gap:  81%

Median Bonus pay gap: 0%

Proportion of males and females receiving bonus:

3.6 % of men receive a bonus

10.3 % of females receive bonus

Bonuses are distorted by a combination of factors. Temporary workers only receive bonus as part of a requirement from clients on an occasional basis and very small values. Office sales staff an identical opportunity to receive bonus regardless of gender.
