    Its towards the lower end
    And without starting any sort of pay war off and with good humour - I wouldn't fancy a job as a Junior Tech there

    Mind you looking at the job spec and person spec, they want a network manager not a senior ICT assistant!

    *edit*

    If they paid £6000 more per year it would be worth my while applying, but on that pay advertised I would be paying well over half the monthly wage just to get there!

    Morning all,

    I've worked at The Warwick for just under 7 years, I'm now moving on to bigger and better and they've had a shuffle around of jobs.
    I have to say that working at The Warwick is a great experience and I would reccomend applying to anyone. The staff are very friendly and sociable and it is a great place to work. Deciding to leave was a very hard decision to make.

    I admit the money isn't great but in this climate surely it's worth applying to gain experience alone?
    I've spoken with the ICT Manager about the post and he says that it's more an experienced ICT Assistant (2 years experience) that he is looking for which explains the payscale.

    If you have any questions about the school etc please feel free to pm me and I'll do my best to assist.

    Regards
    Dan

    The basics of holiday rights
    There is a minimum right to paid holiday, but your employer may offer more than this. The main things you should know about holiday rights are that:
    you are entitled to a minimum of 5.6 weeks paid annual leave - 28 days for someone working five days a week
    (capped at a statutory maximum of 28 days for all working patterns)
    part-time workers are entitled to the same level of holiday pro rata (so 5.6 times your usual working week, eg 22.4 days for someone working four days a week)
    you start building up holiday as soon as you start work
    your employer can control when you take your holiday
    you get paid your normal pay for your holiday
    when you finish a job, you get paid for any holiday you have not taken
    bank and public holidays can be included in your minimum entitlement
    you continue to be entitled to your holiday leave throughout your ordinary and additional maternity leave and paternity and adoption leave
    Holiday entitlements: the basics : Directgov - Employment

    You do not have a statutory right to paid leave on bank and public holidays. If your employer gives paid leave on a bank or public holiday, this can count towards your minimum holiday entitlement. There are eight permanent bank and public holidays in England and Wales (nine in Scotland and ten in Northern Ireland).

    It probably is, those 28 days can also include bank holidays, so whilst the job may only be 24 days, if they get public holidays in addition then that's all above board.
