Oakland International – Full or Part Time, What Gender Pay Gap?

With fewer than half of UK’s biggest employers narrowing the gender pay gap in 2019, supply chain distribution specialist Oakland International is again ahead of the national trend.

Chief Executive Dean Attwell: “We’ve always had a strong policy of employee equality, with good performers irrespective of gender able to earn more. We also operate part-time roles throughout our business which suits single parents, meaning they can work around nursery hours and the school day.”

“Where we can we recruit locally as we recognise the value and strength family members bring to the business. We employ mums, dads, sons and daughters as we offer good rates of pay for both full and part-time roles in an environment which is flexible and family friendly. Families, particularly single parents, need flexibility from employers as by being flexible and accommodating you then create a positive environment which helps to retain staff and their skills.”
