Our Gender Pay Gap 2017

At Swim England, our vision of a nation swimming is wholly-inclusive.

We believe all of our people deserve to be treated fairly and consistently whatever their background or protected characteristic.

As such, we are committed to ensuring equal pay for all our team members and we will always strive to continuously ensure there are no differentials.

In preparing this report, we’ve assessed the reward received by everyone who works with and provides services for us (employees, casual workers and contractors) in the April 2017 pay period.

In this period we had an average (mean) gender pay gap of 11 per cent, compared with the national average of 18 per cent. We had a mid-point (median) gender pay gap of -9 per cent, compared with the national average of 10 per cent.
