We believe our gender pay gap is due to there being:
- A higher proportion of males in the senior roles that attract a higher remuneration package,
- A higher proportion of males in the target driven positions that offer bonus related pay, and
- Females making up approximately 75% of our companies’ part time workforce (not including zero hours workers).
