2018 Gender Pay Gap Report 


The gender pay gap is a measure of disadvantage (a gap) expressed as a comparison between what, on average, men earn and what, on average, women earn within an organisation. Under UK legislation introduced in 2017, employers with more than 250 staff must publish their gender pay gap on an annual basis, with all organisations due to report this year by 4 April. As a public sector organisation, we have to report our data by 30 March each year.  

A gender pay gap is different from an equal pay gap. Equal pay is the right for men and women to be paid the same for the same/equivalent work or work of equal value. The University conducts regular independent equal pay reviews and has policies and procedures to mitigate against equal pay issues.
