Hi

 

I was looking for some advise or help with how to move forward.

 

If anyone has any experience with changing jobs with a reduction in salary then it would be great to know how you managed etc.

 

I'm currently earning 30k per annum in a job thats going down hill fairly quickly due to the company losing some major clients. I can get another job but the salary is probably around 18-19k per annum. I currently rent a house from the local housing association, have 1 child and a partner that works 2 days a week. Currently we receive no benefits other then the standard child benefit. If I was to accept the job at a lesser wage would this make much difference to what we are entitled too?

 

I would rather take a job at a lesser wage then be unemployed.

 

Thank you!

Depending on your partners income, you may get child tax credit. However, I think that might be the basic £10 a week.

Try putting your expected income etc. into the calculator at http://www.entitledto.co.uk

 

I'm not saying that it's exact, but you should get a pretty good idea of what you'll get.

I would wait until you lose the job completely and then consider a worse paid job for two reasons:

 

1) You might get additional compensation/benefits if the company goes downhill

2) Your new perspective employer might raise doubts on why you want to move away from your job.

waiting could also have the adverse affect of no work at all!! it is not easy in todays job market to get a position, this is gonna be a judgement call on your behalf....put the figures into calculator as advised...
