If you saw a job advertised at £25000 pro rata 28 hours per week, when you received your offer letter and it told you your annual take home salary, what would you expect this to be?

Thanks in advance!

What would the full week's working hours be?

Well it all depends how many hours per week a full time member of staff works. Does the advert say?

Olympiathequeen Tue 07-Mar-17 20:38:52

What's the hours advertised? 35? 37?

NapQueen Tue 07-Mar-17 20:40:28

About 19 and a half for a 40 hour week.

£20k - full time in my place is 35hpw

At 37 hours a week I'd expect £18,818

Somewhere between 17.5k (40 hour week) and 20k (35 hour week)

You've got 2 thirds of the information you need to calculate it.

20720 if full time was 37.5 hours as 28 hours is 0.74 of full time hours.

£18,666 ish assuming that full time is 37.5 hours? (25,000 / 37.5)*28

Gizlotsmum Tue 07-Mar-17 20:42:34

Around 18,000

PupPupBoogie Tue 07-Mar-17 20:42:51

Sorry ignore me I thought the salary for full time was 28000

I would assume the actual pay was 28 hours out of a 37.5 hour week on a £25,000 salary. There is pro rata calculator online that shows you the earnings you would have, I've used it when looking for jobs.

Pinotwoman82 Tue 07-Mar-17 20:43:05

It depends on what the full time hours are? Some companies are 35, some are 37.5 and some could be 40

£17.5k because all jobs I've had use 40 hours as full time, but maybe they use less.

pinkstinks Tue 07-Mar-17 20:46:22

Oh god. This is awful the letter says £17,500. Hey haven't given me the hours per week for full time.

I am currently on 29 hours a week on £24000 and have £19,200 as my take home so thought this would be more
I've handed in my noice already grin

I think I'd made a terrible mistake


Oh yes so Aibu?!

bunnylove99 Tue 07-Mar-17 20:47:00

£20k. I'm assuming you are working 4 days of a 5 day job. If otherwise please provide the full time working hours.

MistyMinge Tue 07-Mar-17 20:47:35

£17,500 based on 40hr week

DontTouchTheMoustache Tue 07-Mar-17 20:50:04

Hmm can you take back your resignation and decline the job interview? I'd maybe be looking for something else in the background if you can't.

HopefulHamster Tue 07-Mar-17 20:50:46

Ack, can you un-do your notice?! I wouldn't have handed it in without the letter if any confusion but benefit of hindsight and all that.

pinkstinks Tue 07-Mar-17 20:51:18

I've been offered and accepted the job thinking it would be on around £20k.
Handed in my notice too.
Do ou think there has been some kind of typo on the letter? I've never heard of a charity having a 40hour week.
I can't afford to take a pay cut...

pinkstinks Tue 07-Mar-17 20:51:54

Fuck fuck fuck

bunnylove99 Tue 07-Mar-17 20:52:14

Maybe they have made a mistake? Are you going to be working 12 hours a week fewer that FT colleagues? If not looks like they are making mistake of calculating it based on FT folk getting a paid lunch break but you not getting one - perhaps you should be getting '32' hours?
