Gender Pay Gap Report

The College is committed to fairness, transparency and inclusion in its employment practices. Recruitment and promotion to positions within the College is on the basis of merit alone. Recruitment is carried out in an open and fair way, and adheres to best practice standards within the sector. Robert Gordon’s College does not normally award
bonuses to staff or others associated with the College.

The infographic (displayed below) shows the overall mean and median gender pay gap based on hourly rates of pay as at the snapshot date 5 April 2020. It also sets out the gender pay distribution at Robert Gordon’s College by analysing the workforce pay rates into quartiles. As of the snapshot date, a total of 242 female staff and 100 male
staff were considered to be “relevant employees”.

The College remains confident that women and men are paid equally for doing equivalent jobs across the College. Our aim is to reduce the gender pay gap across the College by continuing to ensure that pay is based on job role and not the individual, and by actively focussing on pay rates for different roles to ensure parity between comparable roles, and through maintaining clear governance on pay awards for senior staff.

I confirm that the data reported is accurate.

The quartiles represent the employees of the College divided into four equally sized groups of employees based on their hourly earnings, working from the lowest paid employees to the highest paid employees.  The gender split in those groups is then calculated and displayed in the graphics.
