I have just started a new term time part time job, I am doing 2 days a week term time plus one week. The salary is £4700 pr annum pro rata rate. I had thought pro rata would show the salary for a full time job position and then pro rata for part time hours so not sure if that is a typo.
I had initially thought just divide £4700 by 12 months and that is the salary but now I am concerned that is the salary at 52 weeks but as I am only working 40 weeks that salary will go down. Am I totally getting it wrong?
Will ask HR when I am next in but am now thing I will be earning £100 less than a thought a month.
If it's a TA job, I'd go with the lowest number you came up with. It sounds as though the 4700 is what you'd be paid if you worked those two days all year (as opposed to the 40 weeks), so divide by 52, then multiply by 40, then divide by 12 for your monthly salary (except I'm assuming it's not paid as a monthly? Sme are, some aren't).
Either way, that's the 52 week salary, and you will only be paid for 40.
TAs and LSAs are paid absolute peanuts. You really don't do it for the money.
