Gender pay gap widens as women miss out

Women still earning substantially less than men

New research by Robert Half Finance & Accounting has revealed that there
is a £31m pay difference annually between men and women in the UK and that this
is increasing year by year.

The latest figures show that in the last 12 months female finance workers
have missed out on almost 20% more than they did in 2005.

Data from its Spring Salary & Benefits survey shows that in 2005 female
financial workers earned, on average, £9,670 less than their male counterparts.

This has now jumped to £11,660 and represents an increase of almost £2,000
per person.

David Jones, managing director of Robert Half Finance & Accounting, said:
‘While the number of women in management roles is increasing, these figures
suggest there remains an inadvertent discrimination in setting male and female
salaries. To ensure managers do not alienate female workers it is important to
address any inequalities that may exist.’
