Gender Pay Gap Report

Within Simpson Millar, women and men are paid equally for doing equivalent jobs. Having analysed the prescribed reporting criteria a gender pay gap has been identified.  We are confident however, that any gap is not an equal pay issue.

The results published across the legal sector show that there is work to do. Simpson Millar is committed to removing the pay gap demonstrated by the reporting analysis and in creating an environment that is inclusive, diverse and one that ensures equality of opportunity and enabling all our colleagues to reach their full potential.

We realise this may take some time to achieve and have established a working group with the objective to better understand the causes and reasons of this gap, and to develop an action plan to reduce this year on year.
