C&M reveals travel's gender pay split in 2022

LONDON - July 6, 2023 - PRLog --
  • Travel industry almost eliminates gender pay gap for non-executive roles
  • But pay gap for higher-salaried roles increases to 14.2 per cent
  • Women awarded 71 per cent of all roles in travel
  • Overall pay gap widens to 11.5 per cent
Gender pay split

The gender pay gap for non-executive roles in the travel industry was almost non-existent in 2022, according to new research from C&M Travel Recruitment.

For junior roles (those paying up to £22,000), the gap was just 0.41 per cent with the average man earning £85 more than a woman, while the gap was reversed for mid-level positions (those paying between £22,001 and £29,999) with females earning £103 (or 0.39 per cent) more than males.

There was also a very small pay gap for senior roles (those paying between £30,000 and £39,999) with men taking home an average of £267 (or 0.81 per cent) more than their female equivalents.

However, there was a stark difference in salaries for executive roles (those paying £40,000 and above), with the average male earning £55,792 – a huge £7,402 (or 14.21 per cent) more than a female counterpart. This gap has increased from 11.94 per cent in 2019 and 10.56 per cent in 2018.

Due to the difference in salaries for high-end jobs, the overall pay gap in the travel industry stands at 11.50 per cent (or £3,606), which is down from 14.15 per cent in 2019, 18.35 per cent in 2018 and 12.75 per cent in 2017.

Gender role split

In terms of the overall gender split in travel, females continued to be awarded the vast majority of new jobs with a total of 70.7 per cent in 2022.

Females took 81.6 per cent of all entry-level positions last year and 76.8 per cent of all mid-level roles.

For senior roles, females were awarded 66.0 per cent of all new jobs in 2022 (compared to 69.9 per cent in 2019 and 62.3 per cent in 2018), while 55.0 per cent of all executive roles were taken by females (compared to 53.2 per cent in 2019 and just 38.1 per cent in 2018).

Speaking about the findings, Barbara Kolosinska, Managing Director at C&M Travel Recruitment (http://www.candm.co.uk/), said: "The travel industry has come a long way from just a few years ago, with more and more women being placed in higher-salaried roles, but more work still needs to be done. There is a real opportunity for travel to lead the way by creating true pay parity at all levels and eliminating the gender pay gap for good, but this will not happen until we start seeing more women being awarded the very top jobs."
