Under new legislation, from April 2017 all organisations that employ over 250 employees are required to report annually on their gender pay gap. The gender pay gap looks at the difference between the average earnings of all male and female employees, irrespective of their role. It is therefore distinct from equal pay, which compares male and female employees performing equivalent roles.

Proportion of women in each pay quartile

Q1 (highest paid) 82.2.0% Female 17.8% Male
Q2 82.6% Female 17.6% Male
Q3 75.9% Female 24.1% Male
Q4 (lowest paid) 69.2% Female 30.8% Male

Difference in pay

Hourly Rate (mean) Hourly rate (median) Bonus pay (mean) Bonus pay (median)
6.3% higher than men 3.5% higher than men 69.1% lower than men 79.9% lower than men

Proportion of workers receiving bonus

Female 15.6%
Male 5.2%

Understanding the data

ENS Recruitment Ltd is a leading health and social care recruiter and training provider for staff across the private and public sectors. These include the NHS, local authorities, housing associations and nursing and residential care providers. We also provide support packages for people who need help living independently.

The data shows that our workforce is predominantly female as is typical in the care industry (NHS England report 79.6% female in the lower quartile). This is also reflected in administrative and management positions, however on a board level there is a more equal split between male and female staff.

This is reflected in our figures where we have female staff earning on average 6.3% more than men, largely due to a higher proportion of female staff in supervisor and management positions. As a result of having fewer male staff throughout the company, except for at the board level, the bonus figures look higher for male staff. However 52 female staff received bonuses compared to 5 male staff, so this has skewed the average slightly.

We are committed to paying fair and equal pay for equivalent roles. All data has been calculated according to the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

What people are saying about ENS

ENS has been our sole agency provider for the past 8 years. During this time we have worked in partnership to establish an agency service that provides us with the assurance that ENS staff are flexible, highly trained and able to adapt to our working environment across all of our diverse services.
ENS has been able to support our services to a very high standard throughout our geographical locations. Key Performance Indicators often exceed agreed outcomes.
Our relationship with their senior team and operational supervisors is professional and open. We are assured that our long standing working relationship with ENS will continue.
To this end we would not hesitate to recommend ENS as an agency provider to support their organisation.

We needed to fill two last minute vacancies with high quality teachers.  With this brief, Julie from ENS did not disappoint.  One candidate was from Canada and Julie ensured that the move over went as smoothly as possible both for the teacher and the school. 
What impressed me the most was how Julie listened to exactly what I required and so no time was wasted on my part, sifting through candidates who would not have been good enough for my school. I would highly recommend ENS to another school looking to fill their teacher vacancies.

My daughter Lynda has enjoyed 24 hour care provided by ENS since July 2013. The care staff are all well trained & briefed as to her complex healthcare regime & are also very sociable. This is very important to Lynda who loves to talk &interact with them. They also manage her household budget, encourage her to participate in domestic tasks within her capabilities, & promote a healthy lifestyle. The administration of ENS is excellent & has ensured that Lynda has a regular rota of carers & that when stand ins are necessary that they have had shadow shifts with her.
