If you work a week in hand you receive the previous week's wages each week. When you leave, you'll get that week's wages and the previous one too, so �520 in total.
This was standard practice when I worked in factories. They paid in cash then, and you had to go back to your old workplace the week after you left to pick up your last week's pay.
