Would they match my pay? Assistant to Deputy Hess...

    Hi I’m about to go for a promotion from Assistant to Deputy head. Given then difference as I’m currently ‘inner london’ wages and jobs up are ‘outer london’. Would a school potentially match my pay? Also if it wanted me and matched my pay I’d be top end of the tier they advertised- would that mean my pay wouldn’t go up ever? Any info appreciated

    Another school is under no obligation to match your current pay, but I can understand why you don’t want to take less. It will be up to you to raise this at interview, so that they can consider if they are willing to pay you a higher rate.

    Thanks very much it’s not me being greedy I just want to work out how my salary could go so that if successful I don’t mess them around as in the long term I may not be able to afford such a cut in wages!

    If you're at the top of the scale there will never be opportunity to move up in this role.

    DH in a smaller school will attract less pay.
    It's unlikely they will want to pay top of the scale for someone moving from AH to DH. If you were a very experienced DH, they might appoint on that amount, but you aren't.
    Depends how much they want you probably.

    Maybe go and visit the school and ask.
