to ensure all our employees can meet their full potential whilst working in safe and enjoyable

The following report outlines our progress from last year’s report and identifies the measures
we’ve put into place to keep moving forward and to reduce the gender pay gap within the

At our snapshot date in 2023 we employed 271 employees an increase from 259 in the
previous year.

We acknowledge that we continue to operate within a historically male dominated industry
and our male to female split within the organisation is 70% and 30% respectively, and our
senior management gender split remains at 83% to 17% respectively.

We are committed to improving these statistics within the business and whilst this won’t
happen overnight, we will continue to encourage the successful recruitment, training and
promotion of females within the business. Indeed, since our snapshot date of 5 April 2023
we have successfully recruited and / or promoted female colleagues into more senior roles
which we expect will be reflected in next year’s gender pay gap report.

Gender Pay Gap

The mean gender pay gap is 27.05% which shows that during this period for every £1 a
male colleague worked; a female colleague earned 73p. Using the median calculation for the
gender pay gap rules our median is 6.03%
