  • There is currently less female representation in the upper middle and upper quartiles due to males being more represented in our higher paid farming and engineering teams
  • Our management and office functions have equal representation of males and females
  • All job opportunities are open to all and candidates are appointed on merit alone.

We confirm the data in this report to be accurate and to comply with the Gender Pay Gap legislation.
