Gender pay gap

Gender pay gap

This page explains what the gender pay gap is, why we have one and what we are doing to reduce it.

Gender pay gap

Greenfields Community Housing is committed to fair pay irrespective of gender. We will continue to do all we can to support our communities in promoting equality in all aspects of our work.

The Gender Pay Gap looks at the difference in the average pay of men and women in an organisation.  This is different from Equal Pay, which is where men and women are paid the same pay for the same work. We pay the same to men and women who carry out the same work.

At Greenfields, as at April 2017, the average difference in pay was 13% between men and women, which means the average salary for men is 13% higher than the average salary for women.

The main reason for this is there are fewer women in senior roles than men and a much higher number of women than men in the lower quartile.

Apart from a female Apprentice Electrician, all our employees in repairs and maintenance trades are male. They receive call out payments for working out of hours, which increases the pay gap.

We are encouraging more females to apply for our trades roles, and recently attended a Recruitment Fair at Braintree College to get the message out.

We will continue to support women returning to work, offer our management development programme to new and potential managers, offer financial support for qualifications to enhance careers and more.
