We’re on a mission to get the charity sector to Show The Salary when advertising roles and close the pay gaps and inequities that exist.
We’ve collated the resources you need to challenge your own assumptions, internal recruitment practices and the practices of your recruitment agency. And we’ve also drawn attention to other other out-dated practices – asking for previous/current salary and listing degrees as essential criteria unnecessarily.
Included is information on how, when asking current/previous salaries was banned, pay increased for Black candidates by 13% and for women by 8%. And how you can help to cut the gender pay gap in the UK which currently sits at a staggering 17.3%.
And you can read personal accounts from those impacted by salary secrecy on the Your Stories section of our website.
More resources and content will be added over time, and we’d love you to share any useful articles/papers you find with us along with your feedback on what would be useful. Do get in touch.
