This interactive tool from the Office for National Statistics allows you to see the gender pay gap between the average earnings across a wide range of jobs.
While the gender pay gap across all sectors and roles is, at 18.1%, the lowest it has ever been, the are large discrepancies in this salary gap across different functions and levels of seniority. For example in the category of Chief Executives and Senior Officials women are paid on average 28.7% less than men, and only hold 30% of the positions.
Search Firms who specialise in filling these highly strategic positions have more power than most to improve these statistics, and I for one am very proud that Invenias' software supports many search teams who are working to tackle the issues of gender equality.
This interactive tool allows you to find out the gender pay gaps and average earnings in a wide range of jobs. It also shows how many women and men work in each role. At 18.1%, the gap in average pay between men and women, for all employees, is the lowest since records began. The gender pay gap does not show differences in rate of pay for comparable jobs. The underlying causes are more complex and may include: - more women work in lower paid jobs or sectors. - women are more likely to work part-time, which can mean a lower rate of pay. - women are under-represented in senior roles. This may be due to stereotypical attitudes about gender roles, lack of flexible working or women taking time to look after their family.
