EOD Pay

#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

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!!!!

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.

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!

That sounds the fairest option. What about people in EOD teaching employments though?

Yes, probably will qualify.

I see that the RN won't get any.
 
#16
If instructors have just come from operational roles they should be getting the reserved rate. If they haven't come from sharp end they should be in LSA Branch anyway - Walts!
 
#18
Apparently, if you are in a role on Apr 1st which requires you to have that qualification (LSN) then you will get the money. This should include the instructors at the Felix Centre but not the bottom school (minus SAT, CO etc) If you leave to a new job which does not require the qual the rate stays the same for 3 years, then drops to 75% in year 4, 50% year 5 and 25% in year 6.

However just to muddy up the waters if

HT = 0801, then surely CMD/BCMD must equal JS.

It’s EOD pay not IEDD pay!

RN get dive pay. Diving only exists because of underwater EOD, so they already receive SP.

Same as RE divers with EOD qual will have to choose which SP they receive.

There'll be teething problems, but it's a good move. I think the RAF have real trouble attracting their blokes into EOD.

Backdated to 1977!! Will you want to be paid in shillings and guineas. The new pay computer can't work out what soldiers are due from last month - what chance for you!!
