It is the policy of Mariposa Care to take all reasonable steps to employ and promote employees on the basis of their abilities and qualifications without regard to age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race (including colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins), religion or belief, sex and/or sexual orientation. As an equal opportunities employer, we believe in appointing the best candidate into the role.

Mariposa Care appoint, train, develop and promote on the basis of merit and ability alone. We are committed to ensuring that existing members of staff, job applicants, or workers are treated fairly in an environment which is free from any form of discrimination.

The data outlined above as at 5 April 2017 which was based on a total of workforce of 329 employees, of which 282 were women and 47 were men.

The median gender pay gap of 0% evidences that men and women are not paid differently for the same or equivalent work.

Whilst our mean gender pay gap of 4.84% is typical of the sector with a higher proportion of female employees compared to male, we remain committed to reducing the mean gender pay gap. Mariposa Care’s recruitment strategy and learning and development opportunities are open to both men and women equally. However, reviewing how we can attract more men is important to us to create a more even gender balance.
