Our Actions

‍We remain dedicated to working to achieve parity of pay across the Party. 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 and promote employees regardless of their age, race, religious belief, sex, sexual orientation or whether they have disabilities.

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 Policies, Parental Leave Policies 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 recruiting and retaining female talent within the Party where our ratio shows 72% male to 28% female, this coupled with an attractive Maternity Pay policy we hope shows support and recognition for balancing talent across the Party.


  • This data was collected in April 2023 when our workforce consisted of 71 (28%) women and 181 (72%) 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.
