Gender pay gap report
The gender pay gap measures the difference between the average hourly rate paid to men within the organisation and the average hourly rate paid to women.
The National Trust pays men and women the same amount for doing the same work, and employs more women than men across the organisation. At the highest levels, the majority of employees (58.8%) are women.
Our gender pay gap exists because we employ more women 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 women across the organisation.
" The National Trust pays men and women the same amount for doing the same work.
Since last year we have made a range of improvements to ensure everyone feels welcome, and this is having an impact as our reduced gender pay gap shows. There is more to do, and we will continue to address this gap. "
Each year we’ll publish our gender pay gap information here, as required under government regulations. You can find this information below.
