1. How Lambeth Council is organised

This covers how we are organised, including where services sit and our management structure with names of directors and key officers.

2. Trade Union facility time

Under the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017, we must publish information on facility time used by trade union representatives.

3. Gender pay gap report

Lambeth’s gender pay gap rate of 4.4% is above the London Council’s average of 3.5% in 2019, but lower than the 17.3% per cent reported for organisations from all sectors. Lambeth council remains committed to do more when it comes to bridging the divide, as set put in the action plan of the report.

The underlying reason is that while there are more women than men at all levels in the council, there are more women than men in the lower quartiles. Our workforce data also shows that more women take unpaid leave, maternity leave and other support leave. All of which contributes to the gap.

This year, there has been some movement in the gender pay gap as a there was a permanent male Chief Executive in post at 31 March 2019. There were also a number of vacancies in senior level posts. Since the snapshot date, the Council has undertaken a series of recruitment campaigns and we expect the gap to narrow again to reflect these actions.

These figures have been published in line with gender pay reporting legislation which requires employers with 250 or more employees, to publish statutory calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees. Lambeth Council does not have a bonus scheme.
