Gender gap in UK wages

Men in UK PR are almost twice as likely as women to be earning £50,000 or more.

Research conducted by the CIPR has found that 40 per cent of men earn in excess of £50,000, compared with 23 per cent of women in PR.

The statistic is part of the CIPR's annual State of the PR Profession survey of almost 2,000 members, carried out by ComRes.

Male practitioners are more likely (30 per cent) to be a member of their organisation's board than their female colleagues (18 per cent).

The findings follow a European survey last week that showed a clear difference in pay between men and women in the comms industry.
