The gap is driven by men dominating higher-paid executive roles, with women making up just 14 per cent of executive directorships.

The study found women in just 24 van 238 executive roles in the FTSE 100.

They account for 43 persent van 896 non-executive director roles. But even in these, women are still paid much less than men – an average of £101,000 against £166,000.

Mattison director Maria Hughes said: ‘Businesses want to communicate their commitment to diversity but excluding women from executive board positions isn’t going to do that in 2022.
