Speak to your ACIO and they will give you a pay fax sheet.

If memory serves right

Basic Training is £13377 then goes up to over £16600 after you complete your training. Depends on your Job choice, how long you serve and your rank on if your higher/lower band. Two pay rises a year (In April after budget and another incrument)

Basic Training you pay food and accomodation but in some phase 2 establishments you now can have PAYD which is pay as you dine(like in any cafe).

Speak to your Recruiter who will explain it all to you in better detail and you must understand about all of this prior to interviews.

Based on the new entrant salary of £13, 337 a year, £1,114 per month gross, you will net £928 a month, but of course there is still food, and accom to deduct from this amount.

You don't get paid in the Army, it's a volunteer force after all.

at ADSC they said after tax, board, and food during phase one it's something like 750 quid... mileage may vary depending on the quality of the accommodation.

Literacy & Numeracy Tests:9th March 2010
ADSC: Pending

Still working on the sums then? :twisted:

The chunkies need people just like you. :evil:

Mind you they will give you lots of great big guns instead of money. :lol:

All recruits start on the same wage irrespective of age.
Based on a 30 day month, a recruit can expect to receive £760 paid into his or her bank account. This is after Tax, National Insurance, food and accommodation charges have been stopped from your pay.

I think the pay is irrelevant if you want a job simply for the money then apply to work in a bank or something..

I was waiting for a comment just like that to show up. Someone always says it.

No one said anything about it being "just about the money", they are just asking about the financial side of things. At the end of the day it's a job and the salary is something you need to consider.

To put it quite simply, money will be shit for your first 6 months in the army as your on a basic flat rate of 13k a year (approx £904 a month) after 6 months you go up to 16k (approx. £1100 a month) thereafter increments from every april, and every year from the day your service started which i believe is a 20% increase p/a.

20%, wow what army are you in!!

Depending on the recommendations of the AFRB tha annual rise is roughly in line with inflation at around 2-3%.

Your increment date will be the annual date from each substansive promotion.

You can get 2 advance increments from getting your class 2 and class 1 quals on top. So look at course dates to time it right as the first one counts (ie. get your advance date in after your annual incremement date as an advance date will wipe out your annual date and become your new annual date, comprende??).

That certainly is putting it simply.

Over 40k within five years of entry regardless of promotion or the annual pay rise?

Where do I sign please?

Indeed they do. It's not like people have any kids / life/ comittment when they join up is it?

How very they dare ask what the pay might be, if indeed they ARE paid!
