IRC UK Gender Pay gap report is published voluntarily and is for the snapshot date of 05 April 2021. Three quarters of staff in each pay quartile at the IRC UK are women and our gender mean and median pay gap continues to remain positive meaning at the IRC UK women, on average, earn a higher hourly pay than men. IRC UK is confident that its gender pay gap does not stem from paying each gender group differently for the same or equivalent work. Rather its gender pay gap is the result of what roles are on offer and the salary grade that they are allocated and so the salaries that these roles attracts and who fills the roles. IRC UK remains committed to addressing any pay inequality that may exist between men and women, to transparency and to enable our staff to contribute to dialogue around gender equality in the workplace.
