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 (66%). At the highest levels, the majority of employees 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 hourly-rate for women across the organisation.
" The National Trust pays men and women the same amount for doing the same work.
The results of our gender pay gap in 2020 have been affected by the pandemic, specifically on how we calculated furlough payments for our hourly paid staff in April. However, I am pleased that since we started reporting our gender pay gap in 2017, we have seen the gap closing and we continue to be below the national average. This demonstrates that the work we have been doing to ensure everyone feels welcome is paying off. "
Each year we’ll publish our gender pay gap information here, as required under government regulations. You can find this information below.
