Gender Pay Gap Report 2023

Current requirements for reporting on the Gender Pay Gap are based on calculations that show the difference between average female earnings and average male earnings.  The calculations are not based on salaries paid for like for like roles.  Data for 2023/2024 can be found below:

Mean gender pay gap using hourly pay:                     -0.86%

Median gender pay gap using hourly pay:                  0%

Using the calculation method required for Gender Pay Gap Reporting, it appears women at Drive are paid more per hour than men, however our salaries are determined by role responsibilities and are not dependent on gender.

Percentage of men and women in each pay quarter:

Women Men
Lower quartile 79% 21%
Lower middle quartile 72% 28%
Upper middle quartile 73% 27%
Top quartile 76% 24%


Drive is committed to the Equality Act 2010 and to gender pay equality.  We use benchmarking and job evaluation systems to ensure our people are paid the same for comparable roles.  All our operational and employment practices are applied using merit, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, religion or belief.  This ensures we have the best people in the right roles, being paid a fair salary.  Our excellent career progression and personal development opportunities are also offered on this basis.

We recognise there is still much to be done, and remain committed to our equality, diversity, and inclusion goals.
