Gender pay gap report

Lambeth’s gender pay gap rate was 1.3% in 2021, which is down from 1.4% in 2020, lower than the 15.5% reported for organisations from all UK sectors in 2020.

Lambeth Council remains committed to reducing the gender pay gap, with several measures implemented and monitored regularly, as set out in our action plan. Some of the measures implemented will not have an immediate effect, this will reflect over time.

The underlying reason is that, while there are more women than men at all levels in the council, there are more women than men in the lower quartiles. Our workforce data also shows that more women take unpaid leave, maternity leave and other support leave, all of which contributes to the gap.

These figures have been published in line with gender pay reporting legislation, which requires employers with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees.

Lambeth Council does not have a bonus scheme.
