Cpl - Sgt Pay Scales

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by Me!_Amph!!, Aug 11, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have been selected for promotion to Sgt and will be in post from 1 Sep 08.

    My question's are -

    Currently I am a Band 5 of 7 Cpl on the high band (RE). Which Band will I enter in to on the Sgt's Pay Scale (1 or 2)?

    Is there a minimin percentage my wages must go up by when i am promoted?

    I am trying to figure out how much i can now send to my Greman and UK Bank Accounts.

    Many Thanks

  2. You must take at least a 2% pay rise!
     
  3. At a guess, you will probably go to level 2. Almost certainly if you were level 6 or 7 you would be going to 2 or 3, but I don´t know without checking.

    As said above, take your current pay, add 2%. If the new figure is above level 1 pay but below level 2 pay for Sgt, then you get Level 2.

    Should it be higher than level 2, then you may be on for level 3.

    Enjoy.
     
  4. :p I went from the top of one pay scale to the bottom of the next.
    JPA coke up apparently
     
  5. I assume your nickname gives away your trade! - In which case you will currently be on £30341.04 PA, you will start on Sgt higher level 1 - £31239.24 PA.

  6. Is what i thought.

    Wasn't sure if it was 2% or 5% minimum. Wishfull thinking maybe.

    Thanks for the help guys
