The Gender Pay Gap Reporting data above is to the best of our knowledge correct for all employees covered by the Regulations as at 4th April 2018.

Our employees are critical to the success of our business. We aim to be an employer of choice and to treat our employees fairly and pay them appropriately for their work. There is no difference in the  median hourly rate of pay for Male and Female colleague.  We’re absolutely committed to providing all of our colleagues with equal opportunities, skills, flexibility and reward to help them do just that.

These reports follow the latest methodology set by the UK Government and cover the period April 2017-2018, comparing what all male and female colleagues are paid on average across the business and measuring the difference between male and female averages. We are pleased to report a significant reduction in the mean gender pay gap.
