What’s the gender pay gap for your job?

Friday December 9th 2016

This interactive tool from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) allows you to find out the gender pay gaps and average earnings in a wide range of jobs and see how many women and men work in each role.

At 18.1%, the gap in average pay between men and women, for all employees, is the lowest since records began.

The gender pay gap does not show differences in rate of pay for comparable jobs. The underlying causes are more complex and may include:

– more women work in lower paid jobs or sectors.
– women are more likely to work part-time, which can mean a lower rate of pay.
– women are under-represented in senior roles. This may be due to stereotypical attitudes about gender roles, lack of flexible working or women taking time to look after their family.
