EOD Pay

Discussion in 'RLC' started by Herrumph, Feb 7, 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. Just seen in a summary of the APRB that EOD pay is being introduced.

    A welcome step -does anyone have the details?
     
  2. JS £6.95

    HT ? and 801 £14.??

    The other level £19.06

    Must be in your job description to qualify. I can see a massive divide coming. But I'll still try and spend the other level.

    PS anyone tells my soon to be ex wife and you're dead :x
     
  3. can you confirm this any link or anything like that.
     
  4. Damn. I've got the other level but am leaving. £600 a month would be v nice - if true.
     
  5. fella i cant see this happing at all.
     
  6. Page 29 and appendix 2 (page 53 I think) of the AFPRB 2008

    Just copy the link into your search bar!!! Then send me a pint. You can also get a reserve rate so if you move into a non EOD post you can still afford to party!!!!
     
  7. You have to be in role and qualified. There are quite specific criteria on who will qual and who will not.
     
  8. It seems to be a bit vague. Anybody any idea where the levels and criteria are explained.

    Its all very easy to assume that the Levels are JS, HT and AMT, but neing that HT and AMT are RLC only then i can't see the other arms/services being overjoyed with this.

    And what about the residual 50%? Is this for qualified or is it like some other specialist pay where it is 50% for 2 years away from specialisation then drops to 0.
     
  9. Personally I would like to see the lower rate going to the remainder of team (No2, Bleeps, Dvs, escorts etc). Middle rate to Operator working at Joint Service level and higher rate going to operators in high risk environments. Possibility of middle rate for remainder on high risk areas perhaps. Or would that be too sensible?

    AMT really doesn't justify specialist pay because it is used so rarely, if ever!
     
  10. What is the OTHER/ Level three pay for?

    Mind you after tax the Level 2 would be about £8.60 ish
     
  11. That sounds the fairest option. What about people in EOD teaching employments though?
     
  12. They play and dont do!
