This year's Gender Pay Gap Report has been published on our website as required by the Government Equalities Office.
Overall our pay gap has reduced since reporting in 2018 on 2017 data. Advance has a female Chief Executive and a female Chair and both the Board and the General Management Team of Directors has an equally fair distribution of both male and females. The management tiers (reflected in the top 50 highest earners) also reflects a proportionate balance of both male and females.
Advance's mission and values strongly reinforce the equality and opportunity for all employees, irrespective of gender. Positive action includes the organisation's continued commitment to creating and providing a flexible workforce to attract, recruit and retain females to higher paid roles. This includes flexible working arrangements, working patterns and hours; occasional working from home, paid dependent's leave, generous maternity, paternity and adoptive leave entitlements. Comprehensive learning opportunities are available for all staff to raise standards in the sector and to enable the workforce to gain accredited qualifications.
