Greater Anglia Gender Pay Report
We are proud that all of our colleagues who undertake roles such as conductors, drivers, catering team members etc. all have a collectively bargained rate of pay. This means that our pay rates are exactly the same whether a male or female colleague is undertaking the role.
In 2021, we are partnering with Inclusive Employers to develop our thinking around Diversity and Inclusion and specifically how to improve gender equality within Greater Anglia.
Over the past few years we have taken steps to reduce the gender pay gap within our management grades (where roles are mostly not comparable) by introducing a comprehensive job evaluation exercise for our management grades which helps to identify the level of responsibility for each role. This way, we can ensure that the rate of pay is appropriate for the level of responsibility, skill set and experience of the colleague carrying out the role.
We recognise that the rail industry remains to be a male dominated environment, however each year we recruit progressively more females into Greater Anglia. We are already actively working on changing this norm by introducing a comprehensive programme of work placements, internships and apprenticeships programmes and commit to continue these programmes for the length of our franchise.
Equality and diversity is a real priority for us at Greater Anglia and we commit to ensuring that our gender pay gap reduces over time.
