Despite the majority of employees being women, the report shows that the average pay difference between men and womens median salary in the Government of Jersey and States of Jersey is 18.3%.

It does not mean that men and women are paid differently for doing the same job.

As a public service, we are committed to equal opportunities and fair reward for all employees, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity or any other personal characteristic.

We pay people equally for the same roles in a pay group, and have been tackling differences in pay for work of equal value between groups.

We are committed to working hard to reduce the gender pay gap and will be using this analysis to enhance gender equality in our workforce.

– Connétable Richard Buchanan, Assistant Chief Minister

The Government of Jersey hopes that by following the UK in publishing these figures, it will encourage large businesses in the island to do the same.
