    Job advert help

    I've seen a Network Manager job advertised with the following details:

    Permanent (0.6 FTE)
    Salary PASS 6 SCP 24 - 27 (pro rata £20,858 - £22,958 pa)
    I'm not 100% sure on what this means - how many hours a week would this work out as? Am I right in thinking that the actual salary would be 60% of the listed pro-rata salary? And would the amount of working hours be something negotiable at interview? I'd be very interested in this job if it was full-time.

    (Apologies if this is the wrong forum to post this!)

    at 0.6, i suspect it is mostly term time only, and not much beyond the normal school working hours (8.30 -3.30).

    And for a NM, that is very low hours indeed. I work 0.75, and that equates to 39/40 weeks of the year, 38 hours a week. In reality, I work 40+ hours a week, and this year will likely have worked 45 weeks....

    IF I were you, I'd just ring the personnel person for that job, and ask them outright what the working hours and weeks are. Never be shy about enquiring on a job direct to the source

    It is 60% of a normal week (36 or 37 hours) so 60% of 36 hours is 21.6 hours a week. It could also be term time only but you'd need to ask that. It could be 21 odd hours a week all year round but I'd doubt it. In terms of when you work the 21 odd hours a week I guess that's a discussion between you and the employer - some places will want you for a few hours each day, other will let you work it over 3 days. We supply a techie to another school for 2 days a week (0.4 FTE) and they are happy to have him for 2 full days rather than say 4 half days.

    I'd be tempted to give them a ring and have a chat about it too - that way you know exactly where you stand.

    If the salary is 0.6 of the £22,958 the it works out at £13774.80 and that's assuming working all year round. If it's term time only then it's even lower. Let's say 40 weeks working + 4 weeks annual leave + bak hols = roughly 45 weeks out of 52 so (45/52)*£13774.80 = £11920.50

    Monthly that's about £995

    I'm not having a go at the salary just saying that the headline £22958 quickly goes down when it's on a pro-rata basis

    I did ask those questions when I emailed them asking for an application form but didn't get any direct answers, only a canned response saying 'thank you for your interest' etc - I'm thinking I might give it a miss and try and find a similar full-time (and maybe better paid) job instead. Thanks for the help guys!
