Gender Pay gap reporting

Tullow continues to recognize that, there is a gender pay gap resulting principally from a gender imbalance across its UK organization. The reduction in our 2019 Gender pay gap shows our continued effort and focus on reducing the gender pay gap.  

The permanent workforce in the UK office at April 2019 (Gender Pay Gap Reporting date) was 30% female with 17% of women in senior management positions. In 2019 Tullow introduced global diversity targets. The target has been set to achieve 40% women in the workforce and 30% women in senior management positions by 2025 and 50% women by 2030. Tullow is very committed to improving the Group’s gender diversity especially at senior levels and our diversity target is reflective of this agenda.

Tullow's Gender Pay Gap reporting can be found below, on the government website, and you can read more about it Tullow's Gender Pay Gap Report.
