In common with many organisations in the retail sector, we had over 86% of our staff on furlough at the snapshot date, 5th April 2021.
Therefore, data for only 26 full time relevant employees was included when compiling this gender pay gap report even though the average number of employees (including those on furlough) during the year ending 5 April 2021 was 545.
The 26 full-time relevant employees at the snapshot date included 4 male directors and so this very small sample size has significantly distorted the gender pay gap figures we are required to report.
We continue to have no prejudices with either gender when it comes to recruitment for the full range of job roles across our organisation. With the continuing growth of the business since we re-opened in April 2021, we expect to continue to employ
many women in pivotal roles, particularly in our sales and office environments.
This report has been compiled by the company and submitted to the Government UK website as per regulations – Tim Carr, CEO.
