    Salary

    Hi folks
    easy little question hopefully. Going to work directly for a school for the first time. Anyone have any idea whether I'd have to work a month in advance before getting paid?
    Thought I best sit down and work out finances

    As in IT Tech in a school or supplier sending a bill in?

    If its sending a bill in, depends on how big and there processing cycle. Our place does cheque run about 3 times a week unless I ask nicely for an urgent cheque to be raised which does occasionally happen. But cheques are sent out 2nd class, and it can take a few days from the date of printing by the Bursar to the heads signing them which can make it 10 to 14 days before the supplier gets it, and that's before you allow time for it to clear.

    Staff are always paid on the last banking day of the month here.

    Yes ... you work, then you get paid. Depending on when you start you will be paid for what you have worked up until pay day ... ie if pay day is on 28th and you start on 14th then you will be paid on 28th for 14 days of work and then you get a full salary the next month, but always in arrears.

    It varies place to place. Support staff get paid on the 15th of the month - 2 week in arrears 2 week in advance, where teaching staff get paid at the end of the month which is all in arrears.

    Same here, last day of the month regardless when you start employment.

    If you are going to work for an LEA it might be worth contacting the Salaries Office if you are going to find things difficult. They may be able to advance some money.

    As @laserblazer says, if money's going to be tight then do ask for help. the other thing to watch out for is that salary runs are often processed quite a few days before the money is paid - if you join somehwere 1-2 weeks before pay day you could have to way till the second pay run before you get paid and that can be hard!

    Eee - you youngsters don't know you're born - on my first job - you had to do a full month before you were paid - and holidays were accrued in the previous full year - so I didn't get holidays for the first 18 months - the good old days...
