Gender Pay Gap Report

April 2022

Context

As Niche Care Limited employs more than 250 people we are required by law to publish an annual gender pay gap report showing the difference in average female earnings compared to average male earnings over a standard time period, regardless of role seniority. This is our report for the snapshot date of 5 April 2021. Niche Care’s workforce consists of significantly more females than males (94.5% / 5.5% respectively). This profile reflects industry trends for care delivery and administrative staff within the health and social care sector being predominantly female. Our gender pay gap results should be considered in the context of this distribution, as the predominance of females to males has an influence on our overall gender pay gap figures.

Key findings

Women make up 94.5% of the workforce and 100% of the top 10% highest earners. The mean pay gap is –7.8%. Our median gender pay gap is 0%. The distribution of males and females across all quartiles is proportionate to their respective representation in the workforce as a whole. We are delighted with the zero median gap between the pay of typical male and female employees. Niche Care employees are paid for the role they have in the team and for their performance in that role. No other factors affect an employee’s remuneration. Niche Care is an Equal Pay employer – men and women performing equal work receive equal pay. The mean gap of –7.8% reflects that 100% of our office-based staff are female. We are commitment to providing equal opportunities across our business and would like to encourage more males into senior roles within the business.

Objectives

The results of our gender pay gap analysis are extremely positive, and we will strive to maintain these results by continually applying diversity, inclusion and equality initiatives.

Statement

I confirm that Niche Care Limited is committed to the principle of gender pay equality and has prepared its 2022 gender pay gap results in line with mandatory requirements. I confirm that the information in this statement is accurate.
