Fingal County Council (FCC) published its Gender Pay Gap Report for 2022 in the run up to Christmas.

The gender pay gap is the difference in the average hourly wage of men and women across a workforce. Employers with more than 250 employees in Ireland are now required to publish their gender pay gap data. 

The Chief Executive of Fingal County Council, AnnMarie Farrelly said: “Publishing our gender pay gap data helps to reinforce our focus on supporting an open and inclusive workplace.

“Our organisation is a place where all employees have the same opportunities for recognition and career development and are treated fairly and equitably at work. We continue to be committed to addressing workplace barriers to equality and creating an open and inclusive workplace community. Many equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives and supports are already in place, and we will continue to work in this area.”

Mean and Median Gender Pay Gap and Pay Band Quartiles – All Employees
The Mean Gender Pay Gap shows that on average, males are paid 4.58% more than females.
The Median Gender Pay Gap shows that the median rate of pay for males is 1.98% higher
than the median rate of pay for females. See image above.

Note, the gender breakdown of all employees on 30 June 2022 is 55% male, 45% female. This
split is represented by the dotted line above.

Looking at the distribution of employees across the four Quartile Pay Bands helps us
examine pay at different levels of the organisation. These Quartile Pay Bands show the distribution of male and female employees by Pay Band across the organisation (the organisation lists all employees from lowest to highest, based
on their hourly rates, then divides this into four equal Pay Bands or Quartiles – lower, lower
middle, upper middle and upper. The employer then shows the proportion of male and
female employees in each quartile).

The local authority sector, which comprises 31 city and county councils employing 30,000 people, provides staff with the opportunity to play a key role in the positive development of their county and community. As an employer of over 1,500 people, Fingal County Council is committed to providing a positive and supportive environment for employees.

The Council offers flexible and family friendly arrangements, blended working, and great career progression and education opportunities.
