Funding Circle UK Gender Pay Gap reporting
In 2017, the UK Government introduced a policy to support the progression of more women into senior roles in business and society. All organisations with more than 250 employees are required to report their 'Gender Pay Gap', which shows the percentage difference in mean and median hourly salary between all men and all women in an organisation, expressed as a percentage of men's earnings.
It is important to note that the Gender Pay Gap does not measure equal pay, which relates to what women and men are paid for the same or similar jobs or work of equal value. Women and men are paid equally at Funding Circle for performing the same roles.
Funding Circle UK's mean Gender Pay Gap of +22% is a result of a lower proportion of women in senior and mid-level roles, and in higher paid teams.
Our biggest focus - and the prevailing challenge for our industry - is to improve and strengthen gender diversity in our technology and capital market teams. We are also working hard to increase female representation at senior management levels through our recruitment and retention initiatives. It will require sustained effort over multiple years in order to bring about the required change. We are excited for this challenge, and believe Funding Circle will play a lead role in driving a sustainable, long-term shift in gender diversity for the FinTech industry.
More information, including our approach to supporting diversity and driving gender balance throughout the business, can be found in our Gender Pay Gap reports.
