Gender Pay Gap reporting

Find out what we’re already doing and what more we can do to make every role at Glyndebourne as attractive to as many people as possible.

GENDER PAY GAP REPORTING IS A LEGISLATIVE REQUIREMENT THE GOVERNMENT BROUGHT INTO EFFECT IN 2017 FOR ORGANISATIONS EMPLOYING MORE THAN 250 PEOPLE.

It’s important to note that it is not the same as the requirement to pay men and women equal pay for equal work. We’re confident we pay men and women equally for doing like for like work.

As at 5 April 2020 Glyndebourne had 227 employees, compared with 215 at 5 April 2018 (compared to a weekly average of 298 in 2019, numbers varying considerably over the course of the year due to the seasonal nature of our business). Whilst the number of employees as at 5 April 2020 falls below the Government threshold to report (250 or more employees), we consider it important to do so as part of our commitment to equal and fair treatment of all our staff. We believe that this is a great opportunity for us to talk about what we’re already doing and what more we can do to make every role at Glyndebourne as attractive to as many people as possible. A huge focus of our work at Glyndebourne is on Diversity and Inclusion across everything we do both on and off stage and therefore we are fully committed to increasing our reach to all members of society.

We are very pleased to report that as at 5 April 2020, our Gender Pay Gap remains below the national average published by the Office of National Statistics at the time of reporting. The Median Gender Pay Gap for 2020 was 9.6% and the Mean 11%.
