Gender Pay Gap Reporting

CIP Data Collection Ltd specialises in the recruitment and deployment of data collection personnel throughout the UK.

We believe that publishing gender pay gap data (defined by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) as the difference in median pay between men and women) on an annual basis will help employers, including ourselves, to see where action to close the gender pay gap is most needed. It will also help us to establish a benchmark for our own staff.

All our personnel are field-based lone workers who necessarily have to call on customers at their home or place of work. This leads to a gender imbalance of applicants reflected by a demographic of 5.8% females and 94.2% males. We have tried to address this in the past and will continue to do so.


We believe that the Bonus Gender Pay Gap shown below is due to the fact that the smaller number of females that work for us do so in the geographically lower paid areas ie: inner city areas have a higher hourly rate of pay and is also the hardest area to recruit females. However, across the UK, the latest official figures, according to the ONS show that the median hourly pay for women is 17.9 per cent lower than for men and the gap in mean hourly pay is 17.1 per cent.

Our figures based on the snapshot date of 5th April 2018 are shown below

Mean Gender Pay Gap 11.86%

Proportion of Males in Lower Quartile 94.12%

Proportion of Males in Upper Middle Quartile 94.12%
Proportion of Females in Upper Middle Quartile 5.88%
Proportion of Males in Upper Quartile 100.00%
