What is the gender pay gap in your line of work?
The Minister for Women and Equalities, Justine Greening, has launched an interactive tool allowing people to find out the differences and average earnings in their field.
It also shows how many women and men work in each role and is based on the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings data in the UK this year.
The online tool, created by the government and the Office for National Statistics, shows construction and building trades, and financial managers and directors have the highest gender pay gaps.
At 18.1pc, the gap in average pay between men and women, for all employees, is the lowest since records began.
