Gender Pay Gap Report reveals Cardiff Airport is ahead of the curve

Welsh pubs rally together to raise money for charity

The fi rst Gender Pay Gap report

published has revealed positive fi ndings in the diff erence between the average pay for men and women working at Cardiff Airport. Last year was the fi rst time all companies of 250 employees or more in the UK were required to publish their gender pay gap data. As such, with 2018 being the fi rst year Cardiff Airport has exceeded 250 directly employed members of staff , this was the fi rst report published. It reveals that: • 64% of employees are male and 36% are female, which - according to ONS data - is much more balanced than the Transportation and Storage industry average of 80% male and 20% female

• Cardiff Airport’s Mean Gender Pay Gap of 2% is signifi cantly less than the Aviation Sector average which stands at 34%

• Cardiff Airport’s Mean Gender Pay Gap of 2% also diff ers greatly to the UK average of 17%; Wales’ average of 12% and the Industry (Transportation and Storage) average 3%

• Companies in the same sector who fi led Gender Pay Gap reports last year had an average pay gap of 29%

In addition to the fi ndings in this report, Cardiff Airport brought forward its commitment to ensuring no employee is paid less than the Real Living Wage, which was planned to come into eff ect in April 2020 but came into eff ect on 1st April 2019.
