Hi guys,
So I've been offered a job as an Education Support Worker at a local college and I'm a bit confused regarding the salary...
The annual salary says £15,423 pro rata.
Anyone know what that works out as an hourly rate of working full time?
And does pro rata mean term time only?

Anyone who could help I'd be very grateful! smile
Thanks.

Pro rata means that if you works 37-40 hours a week all year round then you would earn £15423. go on something like salary calculator.co.uk and it might be able to work it out. Maybe divide the annual amount by 52 then times by 38 ( or however many weeks in the term)

That means £15,423 if you work full time, or (e.g) half that if you work half time.

Hourly rate will depend on how many hours is full time (35? 40?) and how much leave you get.

That sounds like the full time all year annual salary. Usually 35 or 37.5 hours for 52 weeks. What terms is the job being advertised as? "Termtime" could be 35 or 39 weeks for example.

i had a job like this . At 16k per year they paid me only for the days i worked and spread that over the year - it was less than minimum wage

based on working 38 weeksit will be about 216 a week before tax and ni

based on 37 hr week - 5.83/hr but youll get paid for the holidays

Thanks for your speedy replys everyone! My contract states the salary is an annual salary and doesn't say anything about term time.

The job is casual hours, although they did say they have enough work to offer me full time (37.5 hrs). Anyone know how to work out the hourly rate based on doing full time hours..? Thanks again!

I make that about £7.90 phr , plus there would be a small amount to add on as holiday pay if paid hourly. Is it a zero hours contract? If so, bear in mind the fe sector is under increasing financial pressure and support workers are often the first to be cut back,

Thanks Liz. Yes I suppose you could say it's zero hours contract with it being bank/casual.

£15,423×(39/52.143)=£11535.53 gross. Assuming that term time means 39 weeks per year.

lougle Thu 28-Jul-16 21:28:20

Yes, I make it £7.89 per hour (11535.53÷39÷37.5).

LIZS, you're right. 5.6 weeks holiday minimum. That takes it up to £9.21 per hour.

I'm not sure I get holiday pay...? It doesn't say in my contract. Or is that something I should automatically get? Thanks again for all your help. smile

It's law. You won't be able to take it in term time, but you'll get paid money in lieu of it added into your hourly rate. The idea is that you save that portion up so that it covers the weeks of unpaid time off that are technically holiday.

Oh I see. Thanks lougle.
