Mandatory Gender Pay Gap Report 2017
The council believes in creating a diverse and gender balanced workforce which reflects the residents and communities we serve.
We have a mean gender pay gap of 10.72% (average) and a median (middle) gender pay gap of 10.22 %.
We believe in job opportunities for everybody regardless of gender, and will challenge ourselves to be more inclusive as a public organisation. We want to create a truly inclusive culture and will be honest about the issues we and others face in our day to day work.
We are committed to a rigorous assessment and competency-based approach that ensures all appointments and internal promotions are made solely on the basis of merit, and are demonstrated against objective and non-discriminatory criteria.
There is still much work to do and our report highlights the degree of challenge that we face, however the council is fully committed to closing the gender pay gap.
