In accordance with the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017, the Department published in December 2017 gender pay gap figures including mean gender pay gap in hourly pay, median gender pay gap in hourly pay, mean bonus gender pay gap, and median bonus gender pay gap in the publication Gender Pay Gap Report 2016-2017. These figures related to the core Department and its executive agencies. We do not centrally hold any information on individuals’ professions so are unable to provide any gender pay gap information by profession.

We are able to provide these figures at each effective grade for the Department and its Executive Agencies.
