pro rata salary difficulty

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hi I'm sure you've all been through this before but try as I might, I can't work this out. I'm applying for a job with a salary £26,804-£30,614, It's 37 hrs a week but only 41 weeks a year (school term). Can anyone help me as to what my take home pay would be within this range? I need to take home at least £26,500 to match what I earn now and want to be able to go in to interview telling them where on the pay scale I'd expect to start.

    Hey Debo1 :wave:

    This kind of thing can be really confusing! :crazyeyes

    We have some info on working out pro-rata salaries here that you mind find useful to read: http://www.thesite.org/work-and-study/workers-rights-and-pay/pro-rata-pay-1685.html

    It includes a method for calculating it in a few simple steps.

    Good luck - it's really good to go into the interview prepared. If you need some interview tips we have some of those too ;)

    Hi,

    Ive found this site can be useful: http://www.thesalarycalculator.co.uk/

    I dont know how accurate it is but there are different ones for pro-rata, salary, hourly wage etc

    Or 52 weeks = £30,614
    so 1 week = 588.73
    so 41 weeks = £24,137.96

    ish

    If it's school term only and it's a standard school job then it's worth checking whether the salary is pro rata'd, or if it's already been adjusted for term time only. A lot of school jobs are.

    As others have said, there are some useful links - but as I like maths the following might also help:
    £26,804 pro rata'd for 41 weeks = £21,133
    £30,614 pro rata'd for 41 weeks = £24,137.

    To get £26,500 salary on a 41 week pro rata you would need an annual equivalent salary of £33,610.
