A women working in an auditing role earn an average of five per cent less than a man doing the same job, according to new research.
Conducted by Longbridge Search & Selection, the study revealed that the average salary for women was £65,189, compared to £68,189 for men.
Additionally, the survey indicated that the number of women entering into audit roles is disproportionate when compared to their male counterparts, with just 25 per cent of auditors taking in-house positions in the City being women.
Commenting on the findings, John Lacey, managing director of Longbridge Search & Selection, said: "We may be seeing fewer women going for senior in-house roles because of the perceived 'City boy' culture of banking.
"But in spite of the growing number of women at the top we're still not seeing enough of a balance between the sexes moving into these roles."
Longbridge Search & Selection is based in London with operations in Frankfurt, Dublin and Edinburgh.
