    hi everyone, I am knew to the community and home that you can help? I am being interviewed for a library manager job which states the salary is “Grade 5 £21,074 - £23,111 FTE” and it’s 37 hours per week, 39 weeks per year.

    I understand that the higher end of this scale would be £19,791 per year but I wondered how it works? Will it be paid during “holidays” like a teachers annual salary would be or if is paid only for the 39 weeks I would work?

    Hope that somebody can clarify.

    Thank you

    I have a similar contract - 41 weeks though. They just spread it out over 12 months which makes life much easier to manage.

    You will be paid for 39 weeks plus statutory holiday pay usually bringing it to 44 or 45 weeks. Then the salary is spread over twelve equal instalments.
