How Much Should I Be Paid?


We thought it would be a good idea to show the minimum you should be paid per hour. Holiday pay should be paid at the end of your contract for any untaken holiday, and on a casual engagement it should be added to the rate. (NB. Holiday pay is calculated at the PACT rate of 10.77%. If you are lucky your company will use the BECTU rate of 12.07%).

NMW Rates have been updated as of 1st April 2022

More detail

The government website has more details about NMW, employment rights for interns and work experience, as well as working as an intern and as an apprentice (they are NOT the same thing). (Apprentice holiday pay is not shown above as the rate is different from Workers).
