Gender Pay Gap Statement

Gender Pay Gap Report 2021 - 2022

Amberstone Security is a privately owned company and is a provider of security services in the UK, Ireland and Europe.

As of March 2022 Amberstone has over 200 clients, and over 4,500 staff. Amberstone has a pre-eminent position in the security market and takes great pride in being an agile high-growth business, creating an exciting and equitable place to work.

At Amberstone, everyone is paid for the role they have in the team and their performance in that role. Some external factors can affect employee remuneration. This is predominately in the provision of human security resources and wholly dependent on the client colleagues are deployed to. These factors include customer and site-based pay variances, previous TUPE entitlements and, on some contracts, national living wage values.

Amberstone is an Equal Pay employer – men and women performing equal work receive equal pay. Amberstone does have a Gender Pay Gap – males are greater presented in the upper quartiles of pay in comparison to females. This is purely based on the security market being a male dominated environment and the senior leaders being male.

We will continually explore how we can close any gaps found within our organisation to create more gender balance, given that we have more men than women. We practice equal opportunities, and we firmly believe in appointing the best candidate into a role regardless of their gender or any other factors covered by the Equality Act.
