Gender pay gap - 30 March 2017

All organisations with more than 250 staff are required by law to publish information about gender pay by 30 March 2018, and each year thereafter, as part of a Government initiative.  

These reports include all staff (substantive and Bank), as at 30 March 2017, who were in receipt of their full basic pay (so excludes any staff being paid less than their usual basic pay, such as nil or half pay due to sickness). 

All basic pay, London allowances and regular allowances such as on-call and responsibility allowances are included. Reporting calculates hourly rates to allow a comparison. For Bank only staff, this is average hours worked over a 12 week period.
