The Lake District National Park Authority is committed to being an inclusive organisation that supports individual progression and achievement and seeks positive and equitable outcomes for all staff.
Organisations with 250 or more employees are required to publish information which shows the difference in pay between male and female employees. These calculations are prescribed by the Government and use various measures to show the difference in the average pay between men and women.
Gender Pay Gap reporting compares the average hourly pay of male and female employees across an organisation. It does not compare what men and women are paid to do the same, or a similar job and does not measure equal pay. For example, where an organisation has a greater proportion of men in senior management positions, this will create a gap between the average rates of pay for male and female staff.
As at 31 March 2023, the Lake District National Park Authority had 204 employees. Although we are below the employee threshold as defined in the legislation, as this is a very important topic, we have chosen to prepare a gender pay gap report.
We are committed to narrowing the gender pay gap between men and women and will continue to review and act on our findings. Read our most recent annual report for all employees, which includes a breakdown of pay quartiles, comparisons against UK averages and actions. Gender Pay Gap Report
