Gender Pay Gap reporting April 2018

This report is based on the snapshot date of April 5 2017

Doncaster Rovers are an equal opportunities employer. The club adheres to the EFL’s Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Code of Practice which influences every aspect of our work, including engagement with supporters and our approach to our employees.

Our current workforce is 79.9% male and 20.1% female.

Our gender pay gap report according to our legal obligations are as follows:

1 Our mean gender pay gap is 45.5%.

2. Our median gender pay gap is 7.5%

3. Our mean bonus gender pay gap is 86.8%

4. Our median bonus gender pay gap is 59.7%

5. Proportion of male employees receiving a bonus 23.2%

    Proportion of female employees receiving a bonus 19.7%

6. Of the 82 staff in the lower quartile, 65 are male and 17 are female. This means 79.3% are male and 20.7% are female. 

Of the 83 staff in the lower middle quartile, 59 are male and 24 are female. This means 71.1% are male and 28.9% are female. 

Of the 82 staff in the upper middle quartile, 63 are male and 19 are female. This means 76.8% are male and 23.2% are female. 

Of the 82 staff in the upper quartile, 76 are male and 6 are female. This means 92.7% are male and 7.3% are female. 

We strongly believe that we operate fair and proportionate wage structure where payment and reward is based on position held with responsibility and qualification held, however, due to the nature of our business the figures are somewhat skewed as  result of the player wages and bonuses.

Therefore we have opted to voluntarily report excluding the player’s salaries and bonuses.

On that basis, our voluntary gender pay gap report excluding players are as follows:

1 Our mean gender pay gap is 15.6%.

2. Our median gender pay gap is 7.5%

3. Our mean bonus gender pay gap is 83.3%

4. Our median bonus gender pay gap is 18.7%

5. Proportion of male employees receiving a bonus 10.3%    Proportion of female employees receiving a bonus 19.7%

6. Of the 65 staff in the lower quartile, 41 are male and 24 are female. This means 63.1% are male and 36.9% are female. 

Of the 66 staff in the lower middle quartile, 50 are male and 16 are female. This means 75.8% are male and 24.2% are female. 

Of the 65 staff in the upper middle quartile, 47 are male and 18 are female. This means 72.3% are male and 27.7% are female. 

Of the 65 staff in the upper quartile, 57 are male and 8 are female. This means 87.7% are male and 12.3% are female.
