Gender Pay Gap Report

The new gender pay gap reporting obligations were introduced in 2017 alongside the existing requirements for specified public bodies. 

It is a statutory requirement for all employers with 250 or more employees to publish various figures to demonstrate how large the gender pay gap is between their male and female employees.

There are 6 calculations that we are required to report on, our data snapshot date is 31 March 2018;

  • The mean gender pay gap
  • The median gender pay gap
  • The mean bonus gender pay gap*
  • The median bonus gender pay gap*
  • The proportion of males and females receiving a bonus payment*
  • The proportion of males and females in each quartile band

*This is not applicable to Birmingham City Council as there is no bonus scheme in place.

The regulations require all employers who meet the criteria to publish their data information on the GOV.UK website. Publishing of the data is required by 30 March 2019 for this report and by the 30 March after the snapshot date in subsequent years. 

Please view our Gender Pay Gap Report 2018 for more information.
