Gender Pay Gap Report 2019

Gender Pay Gap Report 2019

The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 requires us as an organisation with 250 or more employees to publish annual statutory figures in relation to the gender pay gap.  We are committed to publishing this information annually on both the government website and Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service’s website. 

The gender pay gap is an equality measure that shows the difference in average earnings between women and men.  Used to its full potential, gender pay gap reporting is a valuable tool for assessing levels of equality in our workplace, female and male participation, and how effectively talent is being maximised.   

 “Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service is committed to being an inclusive organisation and we believe that a key part of this is to achieve diversity across our whole workforce. We proactively target opportunities to encourage female representation at all levels and work towards closing the gender pay gap through targeted action, recruitment processes and ensuring our policies support the needs of all staff.  The initiatives outlined in this report support our commitment to closing the gender pay gap and forms part of our ongoing People strategy”. 

The data included in our gender pay gap report is accurate and has been calculated according to the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017.
