What we are doing to improve our Gender Pay Gap?

We are actively looking at ways to address the gender pay gap throughout our business, and have a range of initiatives in place to do this. Some of which are detailed as follows:

Recruitment

We are an equal pay employer and pay employees the same rates of pay for the same grade regardless of sex. As we grow we will continue to offer fair equitable pay to all of our employees.

As an employer we want to employ the best person for the job and pay competitive rates to attract talent. We currently recruit based on our employee behaviours, which reduces unconscious bias and ensures that we have a fair recruiting process.

Employee Benefits

We are currently further enhancing our employee benefits offerings with enhanced maternity pay to attract key skills and talent back into the workplace after maternity leave.


We also offer Childcare vouchers which help reduce the costs of childcare which improves the viability of mothers returning back to the workplace sooner.

Training & Development

We continue to encourage the career development of all our employees and pay particular attention to our promotion and recruitment practices with regard to gender.

We recognise that our most important resource is our employees. We develop our people providing them with nationally recognised qualifications and ensure that all employees gain necessary skills to reach their full potential.

Our recent growth has enabled many of our employees to advance their careers through the opportunities that we create at all levels of our company. We have always been an organisation where people can thrive and develop regardless of their gender or background.

By further development of our initiatives we believe it will help improve our gender pay gap further and help us on the way to becoming a leading, inclusive and diverse organisation.

I confirm the information published above is accurate.
