I've an interview for a payroll assistant in a school. Its 20 hours a week term time only, spread over 4 days.

Can anyone please advise how they will calculate the gross pay?

I work 18.5 hrs per week, term time only.
Basically if the full time pay was, say £20,000 then:

£20,000 / 52 = £384.62

£384.62 * 36 = £13846.32 (36 weeks - term time)

£13846.32 / 39 = £335.03 (39 hrs average full time week?)

£335.03 * 20 = £7100.67 (your hours)

So your annual pay would be £7100.67, monthly gross would be £591.72.

You need to add in your paid holidays too. I work term time (I thought that was 39 weeks?) plus get 5ish weeks paid holiday.

how is the salary presented ? If it is to be pro rated it would be multiplied by 39/52 (for term time weeks) x 20/35 ( for hours). Sometimes the total is payable evenly over 12 months rather than just over termtime.

Back in the day, when I used to calculate LEA pay entitlement (pre-dc), the formula was:

Number of hours worked/37 (full time hours)

multiplied by

Number of weeks per year worked (including holiday entitlement - usually came out as 42/ 52.14 (weeks in a year)

multiplied by

Full time salary

But since then lots of schools have taken on their own or non-LEA payroll services, and don't have to use those figures.

It shows a salary range and pro rata in brackets, no indication of how they work it. Not as much as 20K unfortunately.

Mary, where did you find your job ?
I want to find a 'school hours job', for a part/nearly qualified accountant. so far nothing. any suggestions ? sorry, didn't mean to hijack.

saggarmakersbottomknocker Thu 17-Sep-09 20:11:46

Yes I rather lol at £20k. smile

LIZS Thu 17-Sep-09 20:19:34

btw my 20 hour a week termtime equates to about half the ft salary for the post if that is any help and am paid evenly over 12 months

Oblomov Thu 17-Sep-09 20:25:12

Depends where you live. 20k is below average for a good payroll, round here.

MermaidSpam Thu 17-Sep-09 20:58:37

I am also paid evenly over 12 months - the 20k was just a figure I plucked out of thin air so I could show the calculation grin

In our borough the 'full time' week is 37 hours, and we are paid for 42.26 weeks, spread over 12 months.

Oblomov, I've had a couple of interviews for a finance manager, and each time lost out to an accountant! The one I applied for was in the local paper, but generally most of the school jobs are on I think if you go there, it shows cambs, but there is an option to click on other counties too.

oblomov I would look on your local council's website as well, most have a website or section for teaching and non teaching jobs.

I work term time in an office and its calculated like this:

£13.33 per hour x 20 hours per week x 39 weeks per year divided by 12 months - so I get 12 monthly payments of £866.45. As its only term time I don't get any holiday entitlement and have to make up missed hours.
