The UK Government has introduced new reporting regulations under The Equality Act 2010 requiring companies with over 250 employees to annually disclose their gender pay gap from April 2017 onwards. Here we provide the statutory information and the context of our results.

Mean Gender Pay Gap 43.1%
Median Gender Pay Gap 0%
Mean Bonus Gender Pay Gap 49.1%
Median Bonus Gender Pay Gap -7.8%
Proportion of Males Receiving a Bonus Payment 26.2%
Proportion of Females Receiving a Bonus Payment 7.8%

Mean – The difference between the average of men’s and women’s pay and bonus.

Median – The difference between the midpoints in the ranges of men’s and women’s pay and bonus.


Proportion of Males and Females in Each Quartile Band



Statement from the Chief Executive

The mean gender pay gap for Heart of Midlothian Football Club has been calculated at 43.08%.  This is a direct result of the highest paid people within the organisation being male footballers.  The median average, which is less affected by extreme values, presents a zero pay gap, demonstrating pay equality.

The mean gender bonus gap is 49.13% as this includes footballer bonus payments.

The quartile analysis shows that the biggest gap is within the upper quartile, which is expected when including footballer salaries.

I confirm the data reported is accurate.
