Nottingham City Council has published the latest Gender Pay Gap report as part of the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

The Gender Pay Gap is the difference between the average earnings of men and women expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings.

It is not the same as equal pay, i.e. the difference between men and women who perform the same or similar roles.

Gender Pay Gap 2018-2019 Report Summary

The council has implemented measures which have narrowed this gap from 2017's report, including:

  • Introducing new pay, terms and conditions, which has reduced pay points in the structure to ensure colleagues move to the top of their grade within two years of employment
  • There are a number of family friendly policies available for colleagues to take advantage of, including childcare vouchers and the flexible working framework
  • Training and development programmes around unconscious bias and recruitment procedures are in place to ensure our opportunities and processes are fair

The council is continuing to improve workforce planning to encourage increasing the numbers of women in senior roles, along with further development of existing coaching and mentoring schemes.
