Gender Pay Gap Reporting

From 2017, any organisation that has 250 or more employees must publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap.

The gender pay gap is the difference between the average earnings of men and women, expressed relative to men’s earnings. For example, ‘men earn 15% more than women per hour’.

Employers must both:

If your organisation has fewer than 250 employees, it can publish and report voluntarily but is not obliged to do so. For more information on the requirements please click here.

Written Statement

Contractor Umbrella is an employer of UK tax-based contractors. As the contractors are legally classified as our employees, we are required include their details within our Gender Pay Gap reporting. All compliant umbrella companies pay a salary consisting of the National Minimum/Living Wage plus a bonus. As such, our figures may distort the projection that the Government Equalities Office were looking to achieve.

As you will see, the contracting market is quite heavily male dominated with men being more than three times as likely to be contracting than females (this has increased from 1 in 2.65 in 2017/18). This may be due to circumstances including women returning to work post-families. We also tend to see that at the higher end of the quartile there are fewer females entering into this profession because of the lack of security with regards to consistent income. Working as a contractor in the UK can mean that there are times in the year where no work is available, or not required, therefore we tend to see higher rates of pay to cover this and the niche skill set available to end clients. This may limit the number of contractors who would feel comfortable to engage in this type of working. Some may also not feel comfortable with the uncertainty of roles available.

As most contractors source their work either on their own or via a recruitment agency, Contractor Umbrella has little involvement in the rates that are agreed prior to commencing their employment with us and as such are reliant on the recruiters understanding current market requirements and the appropriate rates available to contractors.

This statement confirms that the published information is accurate as at the time of publishing and is signed by Simon Dolan, Group Managing Director.
