I've been offered a post doc position in the UK and I'm trying to understand how the whole package works so I can make an informed decision before I accept or reject.
Say for example, I've been quoted a salary of £34,377 in line with the national average. What would be the total amount I get for a year accounting for tax and any other standard things that a foreign national might not know about? I've heard about National Insurance, but I don't know how that factors into a quoted salary offer. And practically, how much would I have deposited into my bank account per week?
Also, I'm not intending to stay in the UK permanently. What would happen to the NI after I leave? Does it get paid out when I leave the country?
