Default Constituency Manager (People Association)

Hi

How much does the pay work out for Constituency Manager for People Associations?

I have a friend who was formerly in the police force for about 6 years as a Staff Sgt (non-grad post), resigned and joined PA as Constituency Manager. Starting salary is $3000 + $400 allowances.

I had also worked in a ministry and a stat board, holding a non-grad post before successfully obtaining a private degree and submitted my application to PA and obtained the chance for an interview 2 weeks from now.

What are the pay structure I can think of, in this organisation?

Hmm... I heard PA has good bonus, wonder if it's true.

Please advise me if possible...

Perhaps i could add in that I have about 10 years of experience in a Ministry, 2 years in Stat board, 2 years running my own business, and 2 years in insurance related industry...

I read somewhere that a fresh grad would command about $2950 basic + $450 allowances. But having said that, I'm not holding a local degree and i understand the basic pay might not be applicable to me.

Of course, I would be offered the pay at the first interview, but just curious how much can I hope to have?

well, it depends on how many work experience you have since obtaining your degree. you should be in your mid or lates 30s? They will look at your last drawn pay too. your friend is the same age as you?

Hi, ya, I'm in my mid 30s. My friend got this job when he was 30 yrs of age, as of last yr.

Meanwhile, I'm also browsing around for more information and noted that the panel of interviewers may consist of 5 persons, of which could include directors, etc...

I'm in somewhat a similar situation.. Also nearing my mid-30s.. i just completed my part-time degree with honors.. All this while i've worked in the same industry for 11 years.. Just wondering if it is common practice for HR to disregard all past experience of a person before he gets a degree?
Is it common for HR to use this argument to get experience workers at a discount?.. How to bargain for higher salary in this situation??

I am very active in grassroots...Constituency Manager (CM) is usally stationed in a CC. Report to the constituency director. I think job scope involve supporting RC, CCC events, attending RC and some sub committee meeting (usually at night) and got to do shift work. A lot of interaction with residents. Pay wise, I dont know....

yah

but what is the long-term experience and skill set that you hope to gain from it

is it transferable to other industries?

I understand what it means to participate in grassroots meetings, RC, CC, sub committees, celebrations, dinners, etc... I had been a volunteer before and have also seen my fair share of working with difficult grassroot leaders and residents.

Well, it's the right thing to say that the skill sets are not transferrable to other industries and it's only relevant locally.

But understanding the path and looking at my current stance, I would not be embarking on yet another business adventure nor corporate ladder-climbing. After all, I'm in my mid-thirties and soon, I'll be in my prime of 40s. Realistically, I don't think I'm going to start afresh in financial industries like banking, sales, etc..

There are many PA managers who resigned and thought they had wanted to 'serve the community with passion', 'help the needy', etc. Some time later, they learnt the hard truth that there's always the ugly side of the society where the people they help may actually turn out to be the ones who are thankless and difficult. Disappointed with the outflow of events, they left PA and sought better ventures, despite having higher moral grounds at the onset.

Well, I wouldn't say I am heading towards a path of destruction, but having said that and calculating the hurts that may come, my age, the best possibility of me achieving huge monetary success, helping the deserving (and the ugly) and sleepless nights - I guess there's always room to do more things in the community via this channel.

I'll consider it this way: i'm volunteering and getting paid at the same time...

i think they might give you around $2.5k, since you only have a private degree. then again, you might only be considered for an executive and not a manager.

but think again, many of pa people stay 1-2 yrs cannot take it already. you better reconsider.
