I am trying to put together a coherent job description for an administrative assistant post in the arts centre where I work.
The job is part time 15 hours a week, someone has mentioned that 16 hours would be better for mums as they can then claim Family Tax Credit. Can anyone verify this? Its pretty poorly paid (£6 per hour) - anyone know what that is a year?
If you wanted to advertise a pro rata rate I think the usual thing would be to work out what it would be full time, i.e. 6/hour x 37.5 (or whatever you consider a full time week) x 52 = and advertise it at 11,700 pro rata. That's my understanding anyway when I see 'pro rata' applying to part time jobs, but I could be wrong. I think it would be clearer though to advertise it at 6/hr @ 16 hours/week!
Standard office working week is 35 hours rather than 40 if you do want to pro-rata it Enid.
I always think pro-rata salaries on p/t jobs are a low trick because the actual salary paid is always and inevitably teeny-tiny in comparison.
Assume you will not be putting "self-pitying old vixens welcome to apply" in the ad?
