We are pleased the data shows that our average (median) gender pay gap remains low at 2.17% and we have seen a continued reduction in comparison with the previous year from 2.67%.  This is a downward trend from the prior year (2021) which was at 3.9% and is therefore very encouraging. It also compares very favourably with the national (median) average of 7.7%.

Our pay quartiles have remained constant in comparison to the figures reported in 2022 except for the lower quartile which has seen an increase in males from 25.1% (2021) to 28.76 in this period.

We continue to have a high proportion of women in senior posts and the upper pay quartile which broadly reflects the overall distribution of women across the organisation.
