Jobs at RBS


Recommended Posts

Minimum wage and excessive hours, I think RBS could do better than that. Sorry but if they want a qualified teaching assistant who can cover lessons and deliver quality education interventions then they should be offering a better wage packet.


"but if they want a qualified teaching assistant who can cover lessons and deliver quality education interventions"


That's not what they want and the advert is clear about that.

Unfortunately due to the 'over supply?' of dance graduates they can probably afford not to be too generous.


What do other places pay? I suspect none of these jobs are well paid. And the same applies to many other jobs as well..... I don't know how young people manage sometimes....

They are offering very poor wages considering teaching assistant posts are paid £10 to £12 per hour in South Glos with all school holidays paid.

I clearly work for the wrong local authority then!! Considerably lower hourly rate and contrary to popular belief we are not paid for the holidays, we get the usual statuary holiday pay ( it's about 3 weeks, pro rata ) but it is paid equally over the twelve months so that we receive the same pay each month although we are not actually paid for the summer, looking on zoopla at South Glos now, I feel a move coming on

I work for South Glos as a TA and can say I recieve £11.50 per hour on a hay 9.I do get paid throughout all the school holidays. Those on a hay 8 are paid quite a bit more. When I lived in Cambridge a few years ago I was paid a similar amount. Alongfortheride you can check for jobs on ETeach. This is where most schools advertise posts in my area.

I promise I was not exagerating how much a teaching assistant is paid. However I do cover PPA, I do teach French, RE and Forest School. I do deliver maths, English, Social Skills and speech and language programmes every day. A lot of teaching assistants are aftually qualified teachers who choose this job for various reasons.

Blimey Primrose, I was joking about moving but I work in a Hampshire school as a TA and get £8:92 per hour and 3 weeks paid holiday per year, the rest is unpaid although the salary is paid equally throughout the 12 months.I had no idea that there was such disparity with terms and conditions

If you were a young person interested in working with children in the performing arts, done your dance training and maybe some dance teaching qualifications too - what a thing to have on your CV for the future. The pay isn't great, but then actors' and dancers' pay is lousy anyway and many of them are out of work. This is live-in too.


I think they will be inundated with applications.
