Gender Pay Statement

I, Dominic Morris-Marsham, signing as a Director on behalf of Julius Rutherfoord & Co Ltd confirm that this information is accurate to the best of my knowledge.

Julius Rutherfoord & Co Ltd supplies Secure Commercial Cleaning to buildings used both by the public sector, (eg Courts, Schools, Universities, and Museums) and the private sector, (mainly offices or large commercial property developments).

Our major challenge is that 90% of the cleaning shifts undertaken by our employees are 2 to 3 hours in length and are undertaken either early in the morning or early in the evening.

We do not have control over the times or the lengths of the cleaning shifts, as these are dictated by our clients to ensure maximum efficiency around how they, their employees and their clients/pupils use the spaces that we clean.

The high percentage of women working in the lower quartile can be explained by the fact that the part time nature of the work would appear to suit their personal decisions of not working full time so being able to fit in their other requirements.

We are proud to point out that in the Upper Quartile of earnings we have an exact 50:50 split between males and females showing the success of our long term commitment to equal opportunity in recruitment, training, promotion and remuneration.
