I was hoping to start working closer to home, which would mean a huge drop in earnings. I am currently on UPS2 INNER LONDON, but to move closer to home would mean I would be on the FRINGE pay scale. It works out to be a £7000 difference!!!! That would mean losing hundreds of pouunds every month, which I cannot afford! My daughter is 18 months old and I want to be closer to her childminder and closer to her school when she starts. Has anyone made this jump???? I'm thinking it might be best to wait another year, work on my finacnes and then make the jump?? Any advice???
