  • As a provider of temporary labour Orbital Recruitment is not responsible for setting pay rates for the vast majority of our workforce, they are determined by the end clients to whom we provide staff.
  • Within the recruitment sector roles advertised for temporary staff tend to be generic, not providing an arena for distortion between male and female workers, as highlighted by the median pay rates being the same.
  • The mean and median bonus gap towards female staff is representative of the higher proportion of permanent staff being female, as permanent staff are more likely to be paid a bonus than temporary staff.  In all other aspects the data shows that there is a very even level of pay rates between male and female staff, representative of the non-gender bias present when positions for temporary staff are advertised and filled.
  • Payment of bonuses to temporary workers is very infrequent and usually not of a substantial value.
