The University of Stirling supports equal pay and equal opportunity and is committed to eliminating any barriers. We believe women and men in our workforce should receive equal pay for work of equal value.
As of December 2016, our staff base is made up of 61% females and 39% males. The staff data tables below show that among salaried academic staff, we have an average percentage pay gap within grade of 0.02% in favour of female employees. Among salaried professional services staff we have an average percentage pay gap within grade of 0.06% in favour of male employees.
As an active member of the Athena SWAN charter, the University holds an institutional bronze award for promoting good practice in gender equality. It is our ambition, in line with the University’s Strategic Plan, to achieve a silver award by 2021.
The living wage is paid as a minimum at Stirling and there is a comprehensive pay structure in place that rewards staff with highly competitive salaries and benefits.
