Why it's time to be upfront about salary

To mark International Women’s Day, prime minister Boris Johnson announced on LinkedIn a new initiative to improve pay transparency.

“Evidence shows that listing a salary range on job adverts supports women to negotiate pay on a fair basis,” he wrote, while adding that the government is launching a pilot scheme in which participating employers will list salary details on job ads and “stop asking about salary history during recruitment”.

Alongside this, the Government is launching a returners programme to help women back into STEM careers, after taking time out to care for loved ones.
