Our values

AC Goatham & Son knows that the success of its business is reflective of the commitment, dedication and hard work of the team and pay depends solely on the type of work carried out, how long an employee has worked in the business, and individual performance.  As one of the leading employers in the top fruit industry we are proud to offer fair pay to all of our team.

Gender Pay Gap

The gender pay gap measures the difference in earnings between all male and female employees, regardless of their roles or seniority.  It is different to equal pay, which concerns the pay men and women receive for carrying out the same or similar roles.  The way the Government have asked employers to report means that even when pay is equal, there may still be a gender pay gap.

The gender pay gap is calculated as the difference between men’s and women’s hourly earnings, as a percentage of men’s earnings.

The mean gender pay gap is the average hourly pay for all men compared with all women across the organisation and is expressed as a percentage, with a positive figure indicating there is a gender pay gap with men earning more than women.

The median is the middle-paid employee if male and female employees were ranked separately from the lowest to the highest paid, and the median pay gap is the difference between the male median and the female median.
