At Cambridge Assessment we fully support the Government’s initiative to highlight gender pay gaps within organisations in the UK and we are committed to publishing our UK gender pay gap.
We have recently completed our fourth year of gender pay gap reporting and are pleased to share this data with you. The data in the latest report was captured on 31 March 2020 and shows a decrease in our Gender Pay Gap of 1.24% from the previous year. While this figure represents the median pay gap, we have also seen a decrease of 0.93% for the mean pay gap. The median gap in pay between male and female employees at Cambridge Assessment is 7.49%, while the mean is 8.59%.
Over the four years that we have reported on our gender gap, we have made considerable progress. Our challenge now is to maintain progress and mitigate the challenges of the last 12 months. There are several ways we are doing this, which you can read about in our report.

The gender pay gap measures the difference in the average earnings between men and women across an organisation. This is different from equal pay, which ensures men and women receive equal pay for equal work. Our gender pay gap is explained by the proportions of men and women across the organisation and we are confident is not due to any pay disparity across equal work. Cambridge Assessment’s reward structure supports the fair treatment and reward of employees, irrespective of gender.
At Cambridge Assessment we feel the diversity of our workforce makes a positive and important contribution to our continuing business success. Closing the gender pay gap will take time, but we are committed to improving our ability to provide opportunities to both existing and new employees to progress on the basis of ability alone. Together our current and future initiatives will help to provide an environment and culture that supports our aim.
