Gender pay gap in charity sector

Recent research claims that the gender pay gap in the charity sector is higher than the private sector.

Womens-equalityTPP Recruitment conducted four surveys among almost 1,500 voluntary sector workers and results show that the pay gap has more than doubled in the past two years, from 7 per cent in 2013 to 16.7 per cent in 2015.

This means that on average, for every £1 earned by a man in the voluntary sector, a woman will earn 83p and TPP says this is due to the lack of women in senior management. Only 32 per cent of charity chief executives are female. At directorship role, the gender pay gap was 22 per cent.

Calculations are based on data from the following charity employees: 127 respondents in human resources; 163 respondents in finance; 783 respondents in marketing and communications; 416 respondents and fundraising.
