Women’s average pay at Shell in UK a fifth less than men’s

LONDON (Reuters) – Female employees of Royal Dutch Shell in Britain earned on average 22 percent less than male colleagues, the oil and gas firm said on Thursday, a difference that is more than double the national average.

The Anglo-Dutch company, which employs more than 5,000 people in Britain, of which two thirds are men, said the gap was due to fewer women holding senior leadership positions and fewer women working in technical roles such as operating offshore rigs, or trading roles that attract higher pay.

“Through our robust and non-discriminatory pay processes, we are confident we have equal pay, however, we do have a gender pay gap. Across all our employees in the UK, that pay gap is 22.2 percent,” Shell said in a report on the pay gap for 2017. FULL ARTICLE and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan.
