Helping all our staff reach their full potential

Whilst female employees are equally distributed in both senior and junior roles within the organisation – as evidenced by the pay quartile analysis – there is a nevertheless a mean gender pay gap of 10%. This has increased as a result of transferring of services in and out of the organisation

Chief Executive, Karen Biggs confirmed that “We are proud of the work we do to support everyone in the organisation to be able to reach their full potential. We work in a commissioning environment that has a high level of transfer between organisations and we support staff new into Phoenix to develop their skills and their confidence. This year it has been a pleasure to deliver leadership workshops to 36 women, 7 of them not yet in management positions.

We are also careful to listen to what will make it easier for everyone to give their best at work and ensure people feel supported through life changes.’’

As a charity with a female Chief Executive and Chair and an equal distribution of men and women on our Board we understand what a complex area this is and we are fully committed to encouraging people to share their ideas on how we can eliminate the gender pay gap completely

Commenting on the results Chair of the Board of Trustees, Susan Kinnaird stated that: “As a Board we are committed to ensuring that our people are rewarded fairly for their contributions, regardless of their gender. As an organisation we appoint people to roles based on merit regardless of gender. We fully endorse and support the commitment given by the Chief Executive and the actions proposed to address the gender pay gap.’’
