Additional comment (not part of report): The small gender gap shown arises entirely from the proportions of men and women in each quartile. There is no gap in payment for like-for-like work based on qualifications and experience. As our recruitment is not based in any way on male/female considerations, this apparent gap will change randomly (and possibly reverse) in future reporting.
