The report includes analysis of how pay rates are distributed by gender and ethnicity across Ofcom, and within specific roles. It finds:

  • using the mean average, Ofcom’s overall gender pay gap was 8.8% in March 2019, down from 11.7% in 2017. The overall ethnicity pay gap was 14.5% in March 2019, compared to 14% in 2017; and
  • using the median average, Ofcom’s overall gender pay gap was 8.7% in March 2018, down from 12.1% in 2017. The overall ethnicity pay gap was 13.8% in March 2019, down from 15% in 2017.

Ofcom says that while it has made progress in reducing its pay gaps, there is further to go. In 2018, it put in place a four-year diversity and inclusion plan. It says it will publish an update on progress made in year two, including a new set of five-year diversity targets, in autumn 2020. For further information, click here.
