Gender Pay Gap Report - 2021

Today we publish our Gender Pay Gap Report for 2021. A diverse and inclusive workforce is essential to the success of our work to keep the country safe. While we have made some progress to narrow the Gender Pay Gap this year, we acknowledge that there is still some way to go. SIS is committed to achieving gender parity by addressing the under-representation of women at every level. We continue our efforts to increase the number of women joining us, in all areas of recruitment. We are increasing outreach partnerships with organisations, promoting careers for women and using gender-related data to monitor our progress.  


Richard Moore, Chief, Secret Intelligence Service said: 

"Today we publish our fifth Gender Pay Gap report. This year’s report shows a welcome improvement upon last year, but we know there is still some way to go. We publish this data to hold SIS to account on our commitment to improve the representation of women at all levels within SIS and to reduce gender pay disparity. I am proud that three of our five senior leadership team, including the Assistant Chief, are now women and we are doing more to remove barriers, promote careers, and offer support to women within SIS as well as establishing targeted recruitment campaigns to enable us to recruit more women in the future.

It is my personal priority as Chief of SIS to increase the diversity of our workplace and ensure a culture within SIS that is fair, equitable and inclusive for all who work for us or might work for us in the future. SIS’s workforce must be as diverse as the British people we serve.”
