Reasons for believing employee may not have had equality of terms

[I believe I have not had equal terms with my comparators because I am employed as a cleaner and receive lower pay than my comparators, who are groundsmen. Other cleaners at the establishment where I work are almost exclusively female. My comparators are groundsmen who are exclusively male. They receive productivity bonuses which are not paid to cleaners. OR I am employed as a finance director. My immediate predecessor in this role was male and I believe he received a higher remuneration package than I do, including bonuses.]
