BBC pays men 10 percent more than women: Report

Friday April 13, 2012 07:35:05 PM, IANS

London: The BBC has nearly twice as many men as women in senior roles and pays them a 10 percent higher salary than their female counterparts, a report said Friday.

The figures were revealed through a freedom of information request by media industry trade magazine Broadcast, the Telegraph reported.

The BBC has 82 men in its top senior management grade, compared to 42 women.

Within the senior grade, men earn an average salary of 165,000 pounds, compared to just over 148,000 pounds for women, a difference of 17,000 pounds or more than 10 percent.

At the grade below, salaries average at around 99,000 pounds for both sexes.

But men still outnumber women by two to one - with 223 males compared to 111 females.

The BBC said there were some employment grades in which women outnumber and out-earn men.

Women at the organisation earn an average of 37,100 pounds a year compared to 41,800 pounds for men.

In total, the BBC employs 11,135 full and part-time female staff, compared to 11,609 men.

A BBC spokeswoman said recruitment took place on merit alone.

"Pay is determined individually based on on a range of factors including grade, role and responsibilites. It is never dependent on gender," she said.
