Introducing - Earn your worth
Major Players are no longer asking for salaries in a bid to help close the gender pay gap.
We revealed an eye watering 23% pay gap in favour of men in our last salary survey.
In a bid to help close the gender pay gap we are now no longer asking any of our candidates for current or previous salary information and refusing to divulge any of our candidates’ pay level when putting forward for jobs.
It is totally unnecessary to judge someone’s ability or worth based on their last salary or rate and it can be a contributing factor for women reaching pay parity with their male counterparts. As the leading creative recruiter, we feel we are in a good position to make an impact and to start to help closing the gap through Earn Your Worth.
Setting clear expectations for the role, outlining skills and experience followed by a thorough interview process should be perfectly adequate to assess someone’s ability to do a job. We are asking for our clients and other recruiters in the industry to stop asking for previous pay. We also feel that if you are applying for a job, then you should be given the choice as to whether you divulge your salary.
