Why we have a Gender Pay Gap...

“It’s important to state that the gender pay gap is different to equal pay. Just Eat is committed to providing equal pay for equal work. Our gender pay gap is largely influenced by the unequal gender split within our technology population, which equates to around a third of our UK based employees. Whilst the predominance of males in technology may be a wider market issue, we are committed to initiatives within the business and at a grass roots level that address this imbalance.

In addition, we have fewer females in senior roles within the business - where the pay and bonus gap is most sizeable. We have made recent strides to lessen this gap, and look forward to making further progress in the future. Just Eat strives to create the world’s greatest food community. As such, it is critical that we build a company that reflects the diverse nature of our restaurant partners and customers alike. We wholeheartedly support the government’s gender pay gap initiative, and will put our full backing behind driving changes that create an inclusive and fair environment for all.”
Lisa Hillier, Chief People Officer

Our commitments

Just Eat is proud of the inclusive culture we have built. However as these results show, there is more that needs to be done to address our gender pay gap. We have launched a number of initiatives within the business which aim to create absolute equality around how we attract, develop and retain female talent. Further to this, we have launched a number of initiatives internally, through partners and with local schools which will enable us to support the drive to attract young women to careers in technology.
