Gender Pay Gap 2021

Nimax Theatres Limited – Gender Pay Gap Report

Nimax remains committed to maintaining a positive and inclusive workforce.

Results as of 5 April 2021

Mean pay gap        1.0%
Median pay gap    -6.3%

Our gender pay gap is not due to pay differences between male and female staff.

The majority of our staff are employed in our theatres and their hourly rates are set in accordance with the Broadcasting, Entertainment and Cinema Trade Union (BECTU) agreement.

The improvement against the previous year is largely due to the difference in the proportions of female and male staff in the Front of House roles at the snapshot date and which can vary due to show requirements at the time. As at 5 April 2021, the business was closed under the government national lockdown rules. Therefore employee numbers were much lower due to the absence of show related staff, which has influenced the movement in the result against previous years.

The company has successfully maintained a balanced representation of female and male members across both the senior management team in head office and in the theatre management teams. However, the underlying reason for the gender pay balance remains the same. The difference in the gender pay balance is due to less female representation in technical roles within the theatres. These roles have historically been male dominated within the theatre industry. Nimax enjoys a long serving technical staff team and the majority of such roles are in the top two pay quartiles. Whilst in recent years there have been more females recruited into technical roles, there remains scope to recruit more female members. Such changes are expected to be gradual and over a longer time period. As staff turnover amongst the full time, permanent group is very low, there is very little opportunity to implement changes as swiftly as desired.
