Gender Pay Gap

At F.Hinds we pay women and men the same when they perform the same role, however there is a pay gap that's driven by how our teams are structured.

F.Hinds is 77% female with the majority of positions in our stores. We allow flexibility across our teams with full time and part time roles that offer a work life balance and provide the potential for career progression. We are proud that most of our managers started with the company in more junior positions and have since made pleasing career progressions.

The majority of our most senior branch managers are men and in order to progress their careers, many have relocated around the country when a senior position has become available. Due to personal circumstances, comparatively few women have relocated when offered these senior positions. Moreover, most of the senior, higher paid roles at head office show a greater proportion of men than women however in recent years the number of female managers has increased.

142 women and men received Bonus payments. All branch managers are eligible for commission which counts as a Bonus. In addition, relatively small payments for branch competition winners count as Bonus payments under Gender Pay reporting, as these payments skew the figures. No non-store employees, including management and directors, are paid a bonus.

We are confident that everyone who works for F.Hinds is being paid equally for doing equivalent jobs.
