• Our pay gap reports, available to download opposite, report on data covering the period from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023.
  • For the second time, we have also published an ethnicity pay gap report.

For the fifth consecutive year, we have reduced our gender pay gap and this year we are reporting our biggest year-on-year reduction in our mean pay gap since we began reporting in 2017. This reflects the initiatives we have actively put in place.

Our long term, strategic objectives for becoming a more diverse and even more inclusive employer link directly to narrowing our pay gap. Our ambitions and objectives are described in our corporate plan, Ambition 2027.

As an Employer of Choice, our ambition is to be an organisation that people want to work for, with an inclusive culture where everyone can flourish and contribute towards our success.

We want colleagues to feel part of a diverse, skilled and ambitious community who are empowered and engaged and we aim to provide a collaborative, supportive and safe working environment, one which prioritises the wellbeing of our colleagues. Our People Strategy includes a specific aim for continuing to develop our pay and reward offering and this will assist in making further incremental changes in our pay gap and we have ambitious KPIs to deliver a target for a gender pay gap reduction by 2027, reviewed annually.
