Rockley & equality - bucking the trend

Following a conference attended by our HR Manager, Kat Sargent which highlighted the marine industry as a male dominated industry, we decided to look further to see whether we identify with this. Refreshingly, it appears that Rockley bucks this trend!

Bucking the Trend!

A recent survey about working in the Marine Industry highlighted a few areas for concern including gender-based pay inequality, a decline in the number of young people entering the marine industry and a more male dominated workforce. However, here at Rockley we are definitely bucking these trends!

The Stats 

Our Rockley Education courses have seen the number of young females joining our education courses increase from 15% in 2013 to 52% this year! Many of these students, once qualified, stay on and work for us at our five centres in the UK and France and as their pay is based on their qualifications and experience, not gender, they are paid the same. This year there was almost a 50:50 % male/female split of our seasonal staff, again showing that in our business gender really doesn’t matter! 

50:50

In management 3 out of 5 of our centre managers are female and all have worked in the industry for many years. With our full-time staff, the team is fairly much split 50:50 male/female also, however our Managing Director, HR Manager and Head of Education are all female, again demonstrating that gender is not important in our business. We are definitely an equal opportunities employer with appointments made on ability not gender!

Rockley is showing that it doesn’t matter what gender you are, there are great careers for all in our section of the marine industry!
