Gender Pay Report
Gender Pay Gap
SEC is committed to gender equality and is satisfied that there are no underlying equal pay issues.
It is important to note that the gender pay gap is very different from equal pay. Gender pay gap calculations measure the difference between men and women’s average hourly earnings regardless of differences in job roles, expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings. Equal pay considers whether men and women in the same employment, and who perform similar work, or work of equal value, receive equal pay.
Statutory Reporting Measures
Whilst the SEC figure is considerably lower than the UK national average median GPG which currently sits at 18.4%, we are not being complacent in our approach and have ensured particular focus at our last two pay reviews was given to gender pay.
1. average gender pay gap as a mean average (-8.5%)
2. average gender pay gap as a median average (-0.5%)
3. average bonus gender pay gap as a mean average (-35.0%)
4. average bonus gender pay gap as a median average (-3.6%)
5. proportion of males receiving a bonus payment 46% and proportion of females receiving a bonus payment 54%

Understanding the gender pay gap at SEC
The variances above, particularly in the mean figures, arise as a result of the composition of the executive directors (4 males, 2 females) where the two most senior roles are held by males. Executive director pay is regulated by the company’s Remuneration Committee which is composed of 3 females (1 being the Chair) and 1 male.
If you remove the Executive Directors from the calculations we have no gender pay gap within our team which is due to the additional measures we have taken over the last two years.
I confirm the data reported is accurate.
