What do I pay them?

Hi Again All,

In my budgeting, I'm currently looking at taking on staff. I'd initially need someone to do the usual 9 - 5 in the office. But not too long after starting, should need someone else for a few hours (say 10 - 2).

It would basically just be for general office work and some tasks specific to the business, with training provided by myself on the job (nothing too complicated).

I have no idea what sort of wage to pay though? I was thinking £5.50 per hour. Is that enough? Any ideas appreciated.

Cheers,
Tyler

Hi Tyler

Have you ever thought about outsourcing your office tasks?

It depends. What is it that you need them for?

See my first post

General office work - mainly using computer and phone, post (in and out), managing the diary, plus:

More specific aspects of my business, such as talking to new clients etc. and helping them when they need it

I would provide training on the job. Over 3 - 6 weeks.

If you're only looking for someone for a couple of hours, you may struggle getting a permanent member of staff to agree to those times.

A temping agency could help you out, but if the worker was getting £5.50 as suggested, the agency would probably be asking you for £8ish + 10% on top.

£5.50 - £7.50 in the worker's hand would be normal for the stuff you've described.

Hope that helps!

What is your business Tyler?

I manage a company called The Agency (www.theagencybirmingham.co.uk) and we operate similarily to a virtual assistant. You get the benefits of having staff in the office, without the overheads and employers costs etc.

I'm just wondering if maybe we could be of use to you?
