What is the gender pay gap?

The gender pay gap shows the difference in average pay between women and men. This is different to equal pay i.e. women and men receiving the same pay for the same role.

The gender pay gap takes into account all roles at all levels of the organisation, rather than comparing pay received by women and men performing the same roles.

At SCUK, we regularly review and analyse our employee pay to ensure men and women are treated equally when performing the same role. We are confident that SCUK’s gender pay gap is not a pay issue; our approach to pay is gender neutral by design where like work for like pay is measured.

As a motor finance organisation within the financial services sector, like many organisations, SCUK is affected by traditionally male dominated populations in senior positions.
