I joined this call centre (part time- weekends)... I never spoke to them about the salary.. they have sent me a letter and the salary is above my expectation( i think i am understanding it wrong)... and i really dont understand it right... i dont want to ask them when i am there ..



It says that

"Your salary will be 10,000 per annum pro rata"

and in my hours of work it says


"Your hours of work are 22 hours a week".


so does it mean that i get paid around 8 pounds an Hours.... or is it sometin else....


thanx in advance

that means you will take a salary of 10000/40 * 22 = 5500 a year

Just out of curiousity, what is considered an average salary in Britain for a full-time worker?

Minimum Wage for over 22 year olds is 4.50 and 3.80 for under that...so he's above minimum level

The average salary depends very much on region, but I think the national average is between 20k & 22K

very interesting. I also don't know why divide by 40. Total weeks for a year is 52. :confused:

Pro rata wages are normally based on a 40 hr week. So if you were doing 40 hours you would get 10k pa but you are doing 22 hrs. The maths is straightforward.
