The current rules are that you need to have approximately £106 per week after your outgoings to support yourselves. With your current salary you earn more than enough to meet the requirements.

What they also want to know is that you have regular source of income. If you are part time but have been working regularly then this should not be a problem. You need to provide at least 3 months payslips and bank statements to prove this.

I would be honest and say this is a part time job because you would need to include a letter from your employer as part of the application and they should also state that this is a part time role. As long as you have £106 per week then there should be no problems.

If your job is part-time work then do clearly state it is part-time (I recall there is 'tick box' to select whether the applicant or sponsor is working full time or part time). This is not a concern as I myself worked part time and stated this...just be honest that is very important. In regards to average salary I would state the range of your salary per month i.e. for example between £1400-£1600 net per month and also mention that your salary is in between this range sometimes less and sometimes more. I also believe you are required to provide work address so this way if they have any doubts they will contact your work contact although this is highly unlikely.

Actually, to be clear, it's £111.45/week that you need to have left over after paying rent or mortgage and council tax.
