I'm no slouch with figures, but at the same time, i don't sell myself as a maths whizz, which is why i've come to the whizzes on here for help
I'm back at work tomorrow & whilst my employers eased up on me massively in 2010 & i got pretty much zero hassle from them tbf, i would love a job where i knew what time i was finishing.
The thought of going back is to be quite honest, making me feel uneasy/sick. The job itself isn't bad, but i'd just love to know when i'm finishing. Love to have more than 1 Saturday off in 3 weeks (& even then the gap can be longer). Some will know what it's like to not know your finishing time. Some wont mind it, but others will know it feels terrible. You can't plan anything. If i need to do anything in town, then due to my working hours, i can be waiting 3-6 weeks before i get the chance.
I'm also limited because while my school grades are good (As, Bs & some Cs for GCSE & A-Level) i have no (what i'd call) "proper" qualifications - nothing specific.
So i need to see if i can afford to take a cut in pay.
Last tax year i got 17.4k before tax.
A lot of jobs are advertised at say, 15k per year, but that's before tax. I don't know what that equates to roughly in your hand each week/month/year.
So i'd like to know how you can work it out & then i can try & live off a lower amount for a few month to see what i can manage.
Big thanks & much appreciation to anyone who can help with this one!!!
