Voluntary sector gender pay gap shortens

The
gap between male and female pay for chief executives working in the voluntary
sector fell from 23 per cent to 14 per cent over the last year, according to
new research by KPMG and the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary
Organisations (ACEVO)

The
survey polled 490 chief executives across the UK.

The
average salary for a female chief executive was £41,700 – £6,000 lower than the
average for a man doing the same job.

However,
the gap widens down the scale – a male assistant chief executive is £10,000
better off than a woman in the same role.

Other
findings include:


52 per cent of voluntary organisations don’t have a remuneration committee


chief executives in large organisations work an average of 52 hours a week


less than a quarter of voluntary organisations promote work-life balance,
however 27 per cent are considering it
