Gender Pay Gap Report

The University has published the outcomes of its Gender Pay Audit. All institutions with at least 250 employees are required to produce a Gender Pay Gap report by April 2018, using data from March 2017.

The mean pay gap at AUB as at 31 March 2017 was 10.3%, and the median pay gap was 18.1%. There is a higher proportion of females than males (55%-45%) in the upper quartile – that is, the highest paid quarter of AUB staff.

The results from other institutions can be seen on the government website here.

Both UMT and Equalities Committee members have given careful consideration to the data, and have noted that reporting requirements do not take account of the job roles undertaken. AUB’s report demonstrates that the main reason for the gender pay gap is the employment of a large number of Student Ambassadors, who are predominantly female as would be expected given the overall AUB student population.

UMT, and the Equalities Committee, were both assured that AUB does not have any issues in terms of advantaging one gender over another, and were pleased that females were well-represented among the higher-earning staff, but it is important not to be complacent.

The Gender Pay Gap Report is accessible here.
