As the statistics above show the veterinary sector employs far more women than men. This is especially true for Quartiles 1 to 3 where in each category over 90% of employees are female. We are also pleased to report that 67% of employees in senior positions (and therefore in our top earnings quartile) are women.
The overall average pay differences are explained quite simply; there is a lack of male veterinary nurses, animal care assistants and receptionists in this sector. These groups of key employees make up the majority of our practice teams but also receive the lowest remuneration. Therefore it is of no surprise that the mean and median pay rates show that on average across the whole business women earn less than men.
This does not mean that male employees are paid more than female employees for the same job in the same location. Within each quartile and job type, we are confident that our reward structure is based on factors such as experience, performance, profitability of the practice, geographical location and not gender.
