The Ethnicity Pay Gap compares the average hourly pay (mean and median) of staff from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups and staff from white ethnic groups. As with the gender pay gap, it reflects the distribution of staff from different ethnic groups across the grades of employment at the University, with an ethnicity pay gap typically indicating a greater proportion of staff from white ethnic groups holding posts at senior grades and a greater proportion of minority ethnic staff holding posts at more junior grades.
The University's 2022 ethnicity pay gap is based on our staff population as on 31st March 2022. It shows:
- The average hourly pay of Black, Asian and minority ethnic staff is 11.7% (mean) or 15.2% (median) lower than for staff from white ethnic groups
- The average bonus pay of Black, Asian and minority ethnic staff is 38.9% higher (mean) or 25.0% (median) lower than for staff from white ethnic groups
