At Vanquis, we believe our gender pay gap is driven by the current structure of our workforce where we have a higher percentage of males in leadership roles. We are committed to building a better gender balance in leadership roles rather than just setting numerical targets and believe this can be achieved by having more focussed action around attracting, retaining and developing female talent to reach leadership roles.


As part of the Provident Financial Group, we know that our long-term success relies on ensuring that we reflect the many diverse communities we serve so that we’re able to deliver the products and services that our customers need.


I confirm that the data presented in this statement is accurate.
