As a business Charterhouse have always had a diverse culture and this is now central to our business strategy.

We have seen continuous positive change over the years and these are some of the initiatives we have taken:

  • Commitment to being transparent and sharing diversity data with our staff, following a yearly diversity audit
  • Updated equal opportunities policy and anti-harassment and bullying policy
  • Enhanced parental policies.
  • Diversity and inclusion training for all new staff
  • Regular performance reviews and transparent salary bands based on levels within the firm
  • All staff have the right to request flexible and hybrid working
  • Mental health & wellbeing support and resources are available to all staff

Diversity is at the heart of the business and here are some key facts about our workplace:

Pay Gaps

Since we have a transparent pay structure based on levels within the firm, pay gaps are caused by ratio of employees within each level as well as the ratio between female and male employees within the firm.

We have seen a shift in the ratio of female representation in senior roles in the firm, upper quartile, increasing from 30% in 2022 to 33% in 2023 and male representation has increased from 30% in the upper middle quartile in 2022 to 33% in 2023.

Further to this we have seen a shift in the lower quartiles female representation is increasing.

We are always looking to achieve equal pay and are working towards this. The current pay gap figures are:

Whilst we have achieved a great deal over the past few years we still have work to do to achieve minimal pay gaps for both gender or diversity and this is our focus for the coming years. We will publish an annual report to ensure that we are completely transparent to help both our staff and clients understand what we have achieved.
