In the Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) 33% of SCS2’s in DCMS are women on full-time contracts. This does not capture the total female/male headcount split at SCS2, as DCMS employs a number of male and female staff part-time at that grade.

  • This data has been calculated as at 1st November 2023.

  • The number of female staff at Payband 2 (Director) and working full-time divided by the total number of staff at the department at Payband 2 (where sex is known).

  • This figure includes employees of DCMS and no executive agencies or non-ministerial departments have been included.
