Current job is 22hours a week and about £750 per month and not term time.

New job I'm looking at is 35.5 hours term time starting wage of £16,440.

I dont know how to work out how much I would be paid etc-if it was equal money or more I would be happy-anything less I cant afford so please help me!

What difference will it make to child care - remember to factor that in as well.

How many weeks would term time one be? Not sure how many weeks full time is counted as ie is it 52 weeks or does it take holidays into account? If full time is 52 weeks and term time 39 weeks (which is 195 days ie school days) theb it would be 75% of full time ie £12,330 per year which would be £1,027 per month. But that many hours is just over 7 a day so presume you need child care as well as school. Plus my calculations may not be right. I would check with the employer exactly what you would get paid.

What is your current Gross wage? How many times a year are you paid (12, 13, less because only term time?)

Take all your payslips from last year and add up the Gross pay figure. That is the figure you need to compare to £16440 to work out whether you will be earning more or not into your bank.

That doesn't compare if you are paid a better rate per hour though.

I'm term time only, My salary gets split by 12 and paid monthly. I'm on £18,000 and then it gets divided by 12.

You need to check that yearly figure is £16,440 and not £16,440 pro rata!
