University of Bristol to tackle gender pay gap

Policy Indications

Senior leaders at the University and the Bristol branch of the University and College Union (Bristol UCU) have signed a Collective Agreement outlining the key actions which will be taken to tackle the gender pay ga issue. It’s the first agreement of its kind at a UK university and follows 18 months of productive negotiations.

The median pay gap between women and men at the University of Bristol is 13.6 per cent, which is below the national average in UK higher education of 15.1 per cent and below the UK-wide gap of 17.9 per cent.

The University and Bristol UCU have now agreed a series of measures to tackle gender pay inequality at Bristol which include:

Increased opportunities for progression for women


Greater opportunities to work flexibly or to job share

Funding for pilot schemes to allow research staff to continue working at the university between grants

Training for all staff involved in recruitment and promotion processes
