Salary Survey 2016 Back to Reports & survey Listing

One of the most striking facts to emerge from the Televisual Salary Survey is the discrepancy between median pay for men and women. This has been a persistent feature of the survey since it began, and shows no sign of improving. In fact, the gap – which stands at £12,500 – is worse than it was last year.

Median earnings are lower for women at most levels in the industry. A female AP at a TV indie can expect £32k, while a male AP is likely to earn £37k. A female producer has a median salary of £40k; for a man it is £46.5k.  A female producer director will be on  £54.6k, while a man is on £60k; for series producers it is £52.2k and £70k respectively.

Many women believe they are being paid less than their male counterparts. “There is a definite pay gap between males and females in production roles, particularly shooters,” says one female AP. A female editor adds: “I know for a fact they pay me less than my male counterparts.”

She is likely to be right. Our figures show that a female offline editor typically earns a media salary of £32.5k, while her male counterpart takes home £55k.

Tellingly, one of the few jobs where a woman is likely to earn more than a man is higher up the production foodchain, at executive producer level. A female executive producer can expect £95k, while a man earns a median salary of £87k.
