Workplace Gender Equality Act

Sovereign Hill is committed to providing equal employment opportunities for all applicants and employees, regardless of race, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, marital status, or veteran status.

Each year our organisation takes part in the Workplace Gender Equality Agency reporting and we are pleased with our results. The 2023 reporting period resulted in an organisation-wide gender pay gap for total remuneration of -1.9% compared to the Industry Comparison Group of 20.2% . A negative percentage pay gap means that Sovereign Hill does not have a gender pay gap.

We provide equal pay for work of equal or comparable value and we work towards removing any barriers to the full and equal participation of women in the workforce, particularly in relation to family and caring responsibilities.

Specific to the 2023 results:

  • Sovereign Hill supports employees with family caring responsibilities, with provisions clearly outlined in our Enterprise Agreement. We offer additional provisions beyond the NES for paid parental leave with Primary carers receiving 12 weeks of paid leave, Secondary carers receiving 4 weeks and employees adopting we offer 4 weeks of paid leave.
  • Sovereign Hill consults widely with employees and through the Consultative Committee and actively addresses any gender equality matters. Our organisation has a Consultative Committee where we actively discuss workplace matters that affect our team. We have made considerable inroads to ensuring all roles are non-gender specific and have actively communicated our policy on gender equality to the entire organisation. Our commitment is also included in our Enterprise Agreement.
