The Mad Hatter
Women in junior roles in the IT sector are being paid more than men in the same job for the first time, according to research.
The study by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) shows a female junior IT executive in the UK earns an average salary of £20,730 compared with £20,686 for men at the same level. The same research in 2010 showed men working at junior levels in IT received an average of £1,119 more than women.
Female salaries also rose 2.5% year-on-year, compared with a 0.5% increase for male IT staff.
Sandra Pollock, national chair of CMI's Women in Management (WiM) network, said: "It is wonderful to see that the gender pay gap at junior executive level has closed and we hope this continues as this generation climb the ranks of management."
But Pollock said it would be almost a century before men and women in senior executive jobs are paid equally, based on current trends.
