We are a University employing 39 caretakers, only one of which is female.
As part of an Equal Pay Audit we have identified that we need to tackle gender segregation in jobs to even out some of our pay differentials. For example, most of our cleaners are female, most of the caretakers are male. Cleaners are paid less than caretakers. We want to encourage cleaners to apply for the post of caretaker and to encourage outside female applicants. I have plenty of ideas for tackling this such as advertising for Female Caretakers (men also welcome to apply); advertising as part-time, job share or full-time. Introducing fixed shifts. Just wondered if anyone has any experience of this or any other ideas to add.
