Equality and Diversity
Ipswich Town Football Club's aim is to confront and eliminate discrimination, whether by reason of race, colour, nationality, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age, ethnic and national origin, disability or gender reassignment.
We are also keen to promote the work of the following organisations in helping the Club and football in general to become as inclusive as possible.
Ipswich Town Football Club - Gender Pay Gap Report 2019
We are required to publish details annually of our gender pay gap which includes all staff and players. For the purposes of this report the results are based on the snapshot date of 5 April 2018 for hourly rates of pay and the bonuses paid to staff in the 12 months to that date.
There are six metrics that we are required to report on:
- Difference in the mean pay of men and women stated as a percentage;
- Difference in the median pay of men and women stated as a percentage;
- Difference in mean bonus pay of men and women stated as a percentage;
- Difference in median bonus pay of men and women stated as a percentage;
- Proportion of men and women who received a bonus;
- Proportion of men and women in each of the four quartile bands.
Football is a sport in which the highest earning roles are almost exclusively held by men and this has a significant impact on our results. We ensure that staff carrying out equal work are paid equal salaries - dependent on experience and qualifications.
