Gender pay gap report

The automotive industry is traditionally male dominated and we’re working hard to redress the gender imbalance within our organisation. Arnold Clark is highly supportive of the government’s decision to require big employers to publish their gender pay gap statistics.

Our aims are to:

  • Make sure that all line managers are trained on the subject of diversity.
  • Continue with our collaborative and targeted approach to female recruitment.
  • Encourage women into roles within our workshops and our sales teams by breaking down preconceptions of the industry.
  • Train and coach our current females to encourage confidence and progression within the company.
  • Promote the successes of our female role models internally and externally via social media.
  • Continue to encourage a positive approach to flexible working company wide.
  • Further develop our partnerships with BWS, Working Families and Womanthology.
