Gender pay gap report
The gender pay gap measures the difference between the average hourly rate paid to males within the organisation and the average hourly rate paid to females.
The National Trust pays males and females the same amount for doing the same work, and employs more females than males across the organisation. At the highest levels, the majority of employees are females.
Our gender pay gap exists because we employ more females in lower paid roles, such as retail, food and beverage and cleaning, where the overwhelming majority of applicants have traditionally been female. This has a big effect when we calculate the average wage for females across the organisation.
" We’re looking at ways we could close the pay gap, including reviewing our recruitment policies to ensure all our roles are equally attractive to males and females."
Each year we’ll publish our gender pay gap information here, as required under government regulations. You can find this information below.
