    Yeah I understand what you mean but I think she should do management for masters degree or a phd to get paid way more!

    Hmmph it's not that easy though... You've got to have many many years experience not just a masters.
    A masters in surgical practice would probably be more beneficial

    I understand this but band 8 is one of the largest bands with many sub levels.
    If you look at actual vacancies for theatre managers they are paid around 50k a year.
    Still not that bad, but is that what you are left with or does it get taxed?

    That's before tax, are you thinking of degree level or hnd?

    Yes you can work your way up the field you work in and since you're young that shouldn't be a problem.

    Goodluck!

    That'll be gross, so before tax. 21k before tax is more like 17k after tax.

    Learn to walk before you run. You may hit some hurdles along the way or even change your mind to something altogether different along the way. =l

    Good luck though. Although 21k for a starting salary is good for any job, don't forget, you have no experience.
    The poor buggers these days are petrified because of the depression, back in my day it was all "ooh I love playing guitar, off to Wolverhampton Uni next year to do music, oh and what's the social life like I love getting wasted"

    I'm think to do the DipHE then my masters degree in health and social care management and then hopefully my doctorate professional studies (phd)

    I don't really know why they say 21k when you actually get 17k and what's the percentage of the tax they take?

    I never thought it was this high...
    I thought it was around the lowish 20s...

    Given only big but cheap companies such as Mcdonalds is hiring more people and others are making others redundant...

    I can't even find a part time job a Tesco!

    EDIT:
    When I say lowish, I thought it was about 22-23k...
    The average in London is much higher than the rest of the UK. Pretty sure I read somewhere the average in the North is 18k

    Salaries are always quoted at before tax values. There are plenty of take home pay calculators online you can use. I personally think 21K is good for a starting wage.

    Just to point out as well, each job in the NHS is awarded an A4C band, ou get yearly increments until you reach the top of your band. You cannot move up to the next band without promotion.


    As others have said though OP, concentrate on school for now.

    Salaries advertised are always gross rather than net. The amount you actually get to keep varies based on tax allowances, student loan, etc. There is no one figure they can use for net salary because it varies from person to person.
