The gender pay gap is a difference between the average (Mean) pay of all male and female colleagues across all jobs with our organisation. A gender pay gap does not mean that men and women are paid at different rates for the same work, this would be against our values (and illegal), it means that on average there are more women in lower paid jobs and more men in higher paid jobs.

SJOG supports the principle of equal pay for work of equal value.

Gender Pay Gap Report 2021

(Snapshot Data from April 2020)

Gender Pay Gap - Mean

The data within our Gender Pay Gap report relates to an April 2020 snapshot for publication in 2021.

Women are well represented at all levels of the SJOG pay and grading structure, which is reflected in our Mean Gender Pay Gap of 4.6%, which is much better than the 2020 National Gender Pay Gap of 16.5% for all employees.

The mean pay gap is the difference between the average pay of all men, and the average pay of all women in the organisation.

Gender Pay Gap - Median

The Median pay gap works by standing all men and all women in two imaginary lines in order of pay and then comparing the rate of pay for the middle man and woman in each line. The SJOG Median Gender Pay Gap is 4.28%. Again this is a much better percentage than the UK average in 2020, which was 15.3%.


The Government requires that organisations rank all staff according to pay and split them into four equal parts (quartiles) then publish what proportion of each quartile is male or female. The table below shows our proportions in each quartile.

SJOG does not pay bonuses and therefore is not required to report on this area.
