Hertford is committed to promoting equality in all aspects of College life, including our workforce. We shall be considering in more detail how to establish policies and actions that reduce our pay gap. Some of the difference is accounted for in our academic staff, all of whom are paid the same rate for the job, but where we currently have an uneven gender split. At the lower end of the pay range there is a gender imbalance in some roles which we will seek to address. However, recent recruitment trends suggest that our gender balance in key areas has been improving since the data reference point used for this analysis, and we expect this to be reflected in future pay gap assessments.
