Tullow continues to recognise that there is a gender pay gap resulting principally from a gender imbalance across its UK organisation. 

The permanent workforce in the UK office at April 2022 (Gender Pay Gap Reporting date) was 33% female with 17% of women in senior management positions.

Tullow's Gender Pay Gap reporting can be found below and on the government website.

Response to the Hampton-Alexander report

The Hampton-Alexander set a voluntary target of 33% women representation on the FTSE 350 Boards and in Executive Committee and Direct Reports by the end of 2020. On the latest Hampton Alexander Reporting date (October 2021) Tullow had:

  • 33% women on the Board
  • 36% women in the Executive Committee & Direct Reports

Hampton-Alexander has now increased the voluntary target to 40% women representation in Boards and Leadership teams by 2025, which Tullow will strive to achieve.
