  • Upper Quartile – is high because it is predominately made up of female Group Exercise Coaches.
  • Upper Middle Quartile and Lower Middle Quartile as expected because females predominately gravitate towards the part time roles e.g. reception, creche, café and leisure assistants.
  • Lower Quartile – This is made up of the Leisure Assistants, Lifeguards, Holiday Programme Assistants which are graded bottom of scale 1 or National Minimum Wage.

In summary as an organisation we are proud to report that there isn’t a huge discrepancy between male and female pay.
