Gender Pay Gap Report 2018

Gender Pay Gap - Statistics

Gender Pay Gap report – 2018

As an employer of more than 250 staff, St Margaret’s has undertaken Gender Pay Gap Reporting as required by the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

The gender pay gap in an organisation is the difference in pay levels between male and female employees, irrespective of the position held, or type of contract of employment, and therefore includes workers on bank contracts. This is different from equal pay - where companies are required to ensure that men and women are paid the same for doing the same or similar roles. 

Our workforce is predominantly female, with women making up 87.5% of our staff. We are confident that men and women are paid fairly and equally for the same or similar roles.

We are pleased to report that St Margaret’s Hospice has small mean pay gap of 5.3% and median 4.8%, which is less than the UK average of 18.1%.

The data below relates to information from 5th April 2017.

Median Pay Gap Mean Pay Gap
4.8% 5%


UK average gap – 18.1%

St Margaret’s Hospice does not pay bonuses and therefore has no figures relating to mean or median bonus pay gaps.
