Published: 21 September 2021
Derby City Council today announces its Gender pay gap results, which shows a positive picture with the mean gap at £0.25 per hour between female and male staff and the median gap at £0.34.
With the mean female pay at £15.02 and mean male pay at £14.77.
The results show a change from 2019/20 figures of £0.12 per hour.
Our overall workforce is 66% female and 34% male and we aim for similar proportions across our pay grades. In the upper quartile, with 70% female and 30% male staff, this broadly reflects our overall workforce. This is also the case in the upper-middle quartile, with 63% female and 37% male. In the lower-middle quartile there is a 69%/31% female/male split.
In the lower quartile there’s a greater proportion of men than the overall workforce with a 61%/39%.
The Equality Act 2010 Regulations 2017 requires employers with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female staff based on a series of calculations to provide a fair and accurate summary of pay.
