Nissan Gender Pay Reporting 2023

Our gender pay report summarises the percentage difference between average earnings for men and women. Employers with over 250 employees must publish their gender pay statistics every year.

This gender pay report for Nissan cover all 5 of our UK sites with a combined headcount of more than 7,000 – Manufacturing in Sunderland, Research & Development in Cranfield, Parts Centre in Lutterworth, Design in London, Sales & Marketing in Rickmansworth. The total combined headcount of all these entities is 7072 which is spilt 92% male and 8% female.


The data shows that on average Women’s mean hourly pay is more than men, but that bonus pay is less

Although a higher proportion of female employees are eligible to receive a bonus payment compared to their male counterparts, their average bonus payment is currently lower as a result of their distribution across the bonus eligible grades.

At Nissan we believe that diversity gives us strength and is key to the success of our business. That’s why we pride ourselves on being an equal opportunities employer and have a range of Talent initiatives in place, such as high potential development, leadership and career coaching to support our female workforce. Our award winning schools engagement program, the Nissan Skills Foundation, delivers a range of initiatives that encourage young people to take up a career in Engineering and Manufacturing. These initiatives include GIMME (Girls in Monozukuri, Manufacturing and Engineering), which is specifically geared towards women and GIRLPOWERED which is an engineering event for girls in primary school to encourage STEM. Running for the last five years, we have already seen around 1600 young people take part.

Nissan celebrated IWD in March with a Women’s networking conference, including guest speakers from the industry. We launched a women’s ally network which will support colleagues, helping them collaborate and share best practice. We have facilitated development sessions for women at work, partnering with outside suppliers – and offer coaching for new parents who have taken parental leave over 3 months, allowing them to plan best for their career during this time. Nissan also sponsored and attended the North East Chamber of Commerce Inspiring Females Award in November 2023. Health awareness campaigns continue, this year including the launch of free sanitary products in all female toilets, a menopause awareness event. As well as this, a menopause pathway has been included in our private health coverage.

I can confirm that the information and data reported is accurate.
