Gender Pay Statistics

Our Gender Pay Statistics

Successive Conservative Governments have taken action to make sure that the gender pay gap is eliminated once and for all. As part of this, we have called on companies, both small and large, to publish their gender pay gap data in order to shine a light on pay inequalities and the reasons behind them.

We are proud that, for this reporting period, our median gender pay gap is negative. That means that on this measure, women earn more than men. We will continue to take steps to monitor and review progress on gender diversity in order to achieve gender equality across our organisation.


Our Gender Pay Gap

At CCHQ, our gender pay gap median is -6.5%. Our gender pay mean is 4.9%, which is well below the UK average.

There is a 0% gap between the percentage of men and women receiving bonuses. Furthermore, both 1% of men and 1% of women received bonuses. The difference between what men and women received as bonuses is 17.9%.

Staff levels at each pay quartile
Gender Lower quartile Lower-middle quartile Upper-middle quartile Upper quartile
Male 68.4% 66.2% 58.2% 67.1%
Female 31.6% 33.8% 41.8% 32.9%

  • Where a figure is negative, it means that women get paid more than men using that specific measure.
