    Question Salaries in the UK

    Hi. I have problems with understanding UK salaries. For example:
    1. 25,000, pay award pending -- what does this "pay award pending" mean?
    2. 25,000, plus contributory public sector pension (pay award pending).

    Are (1) and (2) the same?

    Thanks in advance,

    "pay award pending" means that the salary is due for revision but the terms are still under negotiation.

    1 and 2 are essentially the same, except that the second one specifies that a contributory pension scheme is part of the total salary package.

    Also, when looking at annual salaries you should be aware that this is before deductions - for tax, National Insurance, pension contributions, etc. Someone earning 25K would be very unlikely to take home more than 20K.
