Gender Pay Gap Report
Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service (MAWWFRS) is committed to the principle of equal opportunities and equal treatment for all employees, regardless of the protected characteristics they share or their personal circumstances.
We are pleased that MAWWFRS has a gender pay gap lower than comparable national figures. However, we accept there is more to do to fully embrace gender parity. This is not simple, easy or a quick fix; gender pay gaps are the outcome of economic, cultural, societal and educational factors, and Fire Services face a significant challenge in undoing years of misconceptions and occupational segmentation.
We are a public service organisation and need to reflect the communities we serve. There is no doubt that we are on a journey, with a long road ahead, but we are proud of the steps the Service has taken, and plan to take, to redress any imbalances. In doing so, we have witnessed the benefits diversity and inclusion bring to our organisation
