A post has come up at a local secondary for which I believe I am a strong candidate. It is similar in size to the job I currently perform. However, due to FE banding and lack of TLRs etc, my salary will look wrong for the responsibility I currently carry. For comparison, I currently earn approx 12k less than the role for which I am looking to apply. Another query is that my job role in FE is not named similarly to the equivalent role in a secondary school. Therefore it may not be immediately obvious that I currently occupy this level of responsibility and skill set. So question is, to anyone here who has made the move this direction previously: Has you done so with a similar pay discrepancy? And has you done it where job titles do not match even though responsibility does? If so, is there any advice on how to word my covering letter to ensure that they recognise my current skill set and experience? Many thanks in advance.
