Gender Pay Reporting Statement
We are an employer required by law to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017. This involves carrying out calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation; it will not involve publishing personal individual data.
We are required to publish the results on our own website and a government website. Our data, taken as at 5th April 2017 and accompanying statement is set out as follows:
|Women's hourly rate is:|
The average hourly rate for a male was £10.79. For a female, the rate was £10.70. This results in the 0.88% difference in the mean figure reported above. The median information for a male was £9.96 and a female was £9.33, resulting in a 6.37% difference.
|Top quartile||Upper middle quartile||Lower middle quartile||Lower quartile|
The above table shows what percentage of men and women are in each quarter of our payroll.

The Gender Pay Gap data supplied is correct for all employees in post with Dunster House on 5th April 2017. There were 320 employees in post. 88 females (27.5%) and 232 males (72.5%).
We believe in a fair and ethical approach to pay. We believe men and women are paid equally for doing equivalent jobs within our organisation and that all appointments are based on merit.
The ONS Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings suggested an 18.1% (median) gender pay gap in their most recent report. Our figure of 6.37% is significantly less than this and as a Company we will strive to maintain this.
