Parkinson's UK gender pay report

Parkinson's UK employs more than 250 people. Since April 2018, we have published details of our gender pay gap.

We’re committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. We believe that it is an important part of creating a thriving and effective organisation.

All our staff are recruited on merit, irrespective of gender or any other protected characteristics, and our benchmarked salary ranges are visible at the point of advertising.

The gender pay gap is the difference in the hourly rate of pay of men and women, expressed as a percentage of men’s salaries.

For 2020 we found our gender pay gap to be:

  • Mean gender pay gap - 16.9%
  • Median gender pay gap – 12.9%

Our gender pay gap is lower than the 17.3% average pay gap across the nation (Office of National Statistics, October 2019). Our gender pay gap is also lower than average for the charity sector.

We are committed to ensuring pay parity across the charity. In June 2021 we completed work to ensure that all colleagues in the same job family are paid equally.
