PwC has published its gender pay gap information for the first time revealing that its female employees are paid slightly more - 2.8% - than their male colleagues.
But with only two female partners among the 11 in the Channel Islands, the gender pay gap rises to 27% in favour of men when partners' pay are taken into account.
PwC has published the figures after analysing its employees pay across the Channel Islands, where it employs 371 people (57% male and 43% female). The company also pledeged to encourage greater diversity at partner level, where males significantly outnumber females.
"Naturally, we are pleased with the findings which we believe reflect the conscious strategy we have implemented to create an inclusive workplace and greater flexibility for all staff," Senior Partner Simon Perry said.

"It is important that we focus on leadership development as one of our highest priorities so that, over time, diversity at this level improves. This change will not happen overnight but we are committed to the firm having a more diverse leadership within the next five years.
"The issue is not about whether men and women are paid equally for the same jobs. We are absolutely confident that our people are paid equally for equivalent work. But the gender pay gap highlights where efforts have to be directed to encourage more diversity, especially among leadership roles within the organisation."
