As part of its work on Recruiting, Training and Retaining Talent, Build UK collates information on the Gender Pay Gap (GPG) of its contractor members. The latest report includes data for 2021/22 and shows that women working for Build UK Contractor members were paid on average 75p for every £1 men were paid, when comparing median hourly pay. Whilst this is a slight improvement on the average between 2017 and 2021, when women were paid 73p for every £1 men were paid, the GPG continues to be heavily impacted by the low number of women employed at all levels in the industry, including just 10.7% in the highest pay quartile in 2021/22. This means it will take time and concentrated effort to improve the sector’s GPG through initiatives such as the Build UK and Timewise flexible working project and Open Doors.
