Gender pay gap is the difference between the average rates of pay for men and women. It reflects broad trends in employment and salaries at an organisation, rather than comparing individuals.
It’s not the same as equal pay, which is the legal requirement to pay people the same rate for the same work.
All UK employers with more than 250 staff are legally required to publish gender pay gap data by April 2018.

Diversity –We are building on the Athena Swan Bronze Award we obtained in 2016 and recently joined the Government’s disability confident scheme as part of our wider Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) programme led by a dedicated professional.
Reward & Recognition – We are reviewing reward, pay and grading policies within Diamond to ensure they are fit for purpose and that any barriers are identified and addressed to ensure fairness and consistency in recognition, career and pay progression.
Recruitment & Selection – We are developing a strong employer brand to broaden our audience and implementing systems to remove barriers and tap into a more diverse pool of candidates where possible.
Learning & Development – We have recently enhanced our management training provision to include the benefits of a diverse workforce, in addition we have increased our staff development provision to include mentoring, e-learning and other opportunities.
Outreach – Each year we welcome just under 7,000 visitors to the facility giving them the chance to view the engineering and science we deliver. We focus on inspiring everyone to value STEM, and in particular, make sure that we highlight female role models, for example, to ensure better gender balance for these subjects.
