Our Actions

Whilst our gender pay gap is below the national average, we know there is more work to do, and we remain dedicated to working to achieve parity of pay. Consequently, we are publishing our own gender pay gap data here as our commitment to meet these standards.

As an equal opportunities and disability confident employer, we will continue to take all reasonable measures to ensure that we recruit people regardless of their race, sex, sexual orientation or whether they have disabilities.

We publish our generous parental leave and pay policies on our website so that all prospective employees are well informed of their rights.

In order to support our employees at CCHQ we have implemented a series of internal policies which we hope will make CCHQ a more attractive place for all to work, such as our Flexible Working Policy and Menopause Policy; we hope our Menopause Policy will help to foster an environment where colleagues can openly and comfortably instigate conversations, engage in discussions about menopause, and educate on how we can support the women in our organisation. We know that is a crucial step and an important part of retaining our female talent within the Party.


  • We are publishing this data in advance of our submission deadline, the 4th of April 2022. 

  • This data was collected in April 2021 when our workforce consisted of 83 (36%) women and 149 (64%) men

  • These figures refer to all employees within the Conservative Campaign Headquarters, including all field and regional staff employed by the Conservative Party. This includes those in Wales and Scotland. It does not include those directly employed by Associations or by any elected officials.

I confirm that the information included in this report is accurate.
