    There is a job advertised I am currently looking at that is advertised as 14hours a week with a salary of
    "£19,632 to £22,685 (pro rata) per annum"


    Is this a mistake?

    It's calculated pro-rata, which means as a proportion.

    So if £19,632 was the agreed annual salary, on a pro-rata basis of woking 14 out of the normal 40 hours per week, you'd earn:

    (14/40)*19,632 =/= 35% of the annual salary

    = £6,871.20.

    That's pro-rata. :rofl: Pro-rata is basically what you'd get if you worked full time.

    Look, I'm a bit stupid OK? I didn't know what pro-rata meant.

    Ahh I only know really because my mums pay was like that. I think it's surprising how much people don't really realise it though until they start the job.

    Which is why I went here before I started demanding 20k for a 14hour week.
