    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!
