Female auditors receive nearly 5% less than their male counterparts, research
by audit recruiter
Longbridge Search &
Selection
has found.

Men in audit earn an average £68,492 a year compared with £65,189 for women
while women in junior roles are paid about 9% less than men at £45,509. A man
doing the same job earns an average of £50,048.

However, women are taking home slightly more money in senior in-house audit
positions which carry an average salary for women at £87,056 compared with
£86,936 for men.

John Lacey, Longbridge Search & Selection managing director, said that,
compared to other industry sectors, audit was a ‘hotbed of equality’. ‘It is
worth looking at these figures in context,’ he said. ‘If we compare the 5%
difference in audit to the wider job market it looks much better. On average,
women in London are still paid up to 23% less than men.’
