Based on evidence gathered in the National Management Salary Survey, this paper focuses on the gap between the pay of women and men in UK organisations. Now in its 39th year, the 2013 survey covered the period between August 2011 and August 2012, with data collected from 38,843 employees working in executive positions in UK organisations, from junior levels through to those on the board. Findings include:

  • The average male executive earned a basic salary of £40,325 over the 12 months to August 2012, compared to £30,265 for a female in the same type of role. 
  • Female directors earn an average basic salary of £127,257 which is £14,689 less than the male director average of £141,946. 
  • Based on current pay levels, an average female executive would earn £423,390 less than a male executive with a similar career path.
