Notting Hill Housing has today published its Gender Pay Gap data, looking at the difference in the average pay of men and women within the organisation.
Government requires all organisations with more than 250 staff to publish the figures before April 2018.
Based on a snapshot date of April 5 2017, our median pay gap was 19.8 per cent. However, this is largely a result of the large number of women employed as Domiciliary Care Officers (DCOs) within the organisation. A quarter of all our staff are DCOs, and 95 per cent of those are women.
Without DCOs, the gender pay gap falls to 6.7 per cent.
This remaining gap is due to the different roles taken by men and women within the organisation and the salaries these roles attract to be competitive in the market.
The gender pay gap is not the same as equal pay – which looks at whether women and men are paid differently for the same work. We have a clear policy of paying employees equally for the same or equivalent work.
We will continue to ensure we monitor both the gender pay gap and equal pay throughout our proposed merger with Genesis Housing Association, regularly reviewing the make-up of the organisation.
