Buckingham tops gender pay gap table

The University of Buckingham has the biggest median gender pay gap in England, according to the latest data reported to the UK government.

Last week was the deadline for universities to submit their pay gap data, and analysis by HE shows that according to median pay per hour, men at Buckingham are paid 37 per cent more than women.

A spokeswoman for the university said the figure was partly due to the recruitment of more apprentices, and that women in the lowest pay bracket “mostly work part-time” thanks to flexible working practices. She added that there was “no evidence of unequal gender pay for undertaking the same role”, and that to address the gap the university had introduced “a wide range of measures” to ensure that policies and processes were “more robust, and which is bringing about improvements”.
