Every year we are asked by the SRA to complete a diversity and equality survey. We therefore conducted a fresh survey between 8th -16th July 2021. The following is based on the information supplied taking into account the small sample and the need to respect people’s privacy.
The age range of those working here ranged between 25 to over 64, most aged 45-54, reflected equally between fee-earners and support staff.
Of the fee earners 50% were male, 50% female whilst all support staff responding were female.
No one replying identified as disabled
Pakistani and white heritage was represented amongst fee earners whilst white and mixed heritage was represented in support staff. 100% of fee earners responding were white, as were 86% of support staff.
A range of religious beliefs, including Muslim and Christian, and none was represented in the sample.
100% responded as having been taught in the state sector.
The questionnaire, produced by the SRA, also enquired about educational and job backgrounds of parents to those answering. There were a range of answers with only 18% reporting a parent in a “modern profession”. Only 27% reporting as having had a parent who went to University.
25% of fee-earners and 14% of support staff were the primary carer of a child or children under 18 .
