Bridging The Gap

Gender Pay Gap Report

We are serious about making Aster Group a great place to work. 

Right at the heart of that is a belief that a person’s ability to do their job is what is important, not their gender, age, sexuality or any other personal factor. 

We are determined that this will be reflected at all points in the employee journey, from recruitment, internal promotion and opportunities to learn, to how much we pay our people for the work they do. 

We firmly believe in creating a culture that allows us to attract, retain and support each and every one of our colleagues and we will work hard to ensure that we provide an environment that is fair and inclusive. 

Our group-wide gender pay gap for 2023 was 15.2%, individually Aster Group was 17.17%, for Central and Cecil Housing Trust (C&C) it was 16.18%, Aster Property it was 7.2% and for Aster Communities it was 17.98%. View more information about our 2023 gender pay information below.

Economic Impact Report

Because we sit at the heart of society, we believe it’s important to measure our impact in as tangible a way as possible to understand our business, ensure our strategy is relevant, help us make positive contributions to society and fulfil our business objectives.

To calculate the true economic impact of our activities, market analysis consultant, Development Economics Ltd, has reviewed our work to measure the success of our strategy to build new homes and provide vital services to our communities.
