Our 2017 Gender Pay Gap Report

Gender pay gap reporting requires employers with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees. The Gender pay gap report is based on data as at 5th April 2017. At this date Hillarys employed 1437 staff with 40% (576) being male and 60% (861) being female. The table below demonstrates that when compared to National statistics for the UK, Hillarys Gender Pay Gap is significantly lower than the UK average of 18% for median pay.

Our Pay Gender Gap is as follows:







Proportion of staff awarded a bonus during the year to April 17.







 Receiving Bonus



 % Receiving A Bonus



This shows a 5.4% difference between the number of woman being paid a bonus for their performance in 2016/17 when compared to the number of men receiving a bonus

Our Bonus Gap is as follows:







Pay Quartiles



 Male %


 Female %






 Lower Middle





 Upper Middle










A large number of roles within Hillarys are defined by role titles particularly in the areas of production, contact centre and administration. Within these roles, which account for almost three quarters of staff employed by the Hillarys’ Group, male and female employees are paid equally for doing equivalent jobs.  The gender pay gap identified above, whilst considerably lower than the national average is driven by the fact that a higher proportion of the women employed by the group are employed within production, contact centre and administrative roles.
