Gender and ethnicity pay gaps – 2022 figures now live


April 5th, 2022

The 2022 gender and ethnicity pay gap reports are now available on the HR website.

This year sees the fifth annual statutory reporting of the university’s gender pay gap. Whilst our mean gender pay gap has reduced by 0.2%, we are disappointed that our median pay gap has increased during the extraordinary circumstances of the pandemic.

The increase is largely attributable to the voluntary redundancy measures we implemented as part of our institutional response to Covid-19 last year.

However, we will redouble our efforts to reinstate the good progress we have been making over previous years to further reduce our pay gaps.

We will take further action to provide support such as further mentoring and childcare facilities, and examining recruitment, retention and promotion processes to better support those with protected characteristics.

The university’s ethnicity pay gap figures have also been published.

Although not mandatory, sharing the pay gap between white and BAME staff is a key step towards understanding the gap and developing actions to reduce it.  Here we are pleased to have reduced the mean calculation by 3.2% and the median calculation by 6% over the same period.
