Summary Statement

The gender pay gap among full-time employees stands at 8.9% which is little change from the previous year, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has reported. This means, the average female full-time employee now earns 8.9% less than the average man.

Mean pay

Our mean pay gap of 19% means we have had an increase from the previous year, we believe this is due a number of senior female employees leaving the business and in additional a number of new male senior employees joining the business.

Median pay

The median female average rate of pay however is still higher than then median male rate of pay. This has decreased by 1.9% compared to last year but is higher due to the following reasons:

  • We have considerably more female than male employees
  • We had a number of new male senior employees joining the business with higher paid salaries than those of the females who left
  • Almost half the male employees are in lower paid roles within our distribution centre

Mean and Median Bonus

The average male bonus is higher than the average female bonus and has increased compared to last year. This is influenced upwards in the statistics by the highest bonused employee being our General Manager who is male and by another new senior team member who is also male having joined the business. However the median bonus is not much higher for males compared to females.

Population % by Pay Quartiles

This identifies the proportions of males and females in each pay quartile. Whilst female employees make up 85% of the workforce, there is not a consistent 90-10 equal demographic in each quartile.

The majority of female employees sit in the middle two quartiles of pay and occupy 5 of the top 10 roles by base pay. Male employees are more represented in the lower and upper quartiles.


We confirm that the information and data reported above is accurate and in line with the UK governments Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Information) Regulations 2017.
