Hi all, Very quick question, but what constitutes 'higher' on the pay bands? My first choice job choice (Int Corps) is said to be on a higher pay band, and I am also supposed to get a promotion to Lance right off the bat (which is nice). However when I asked my recruiter, not five minutes ago, what 'higher' actually meant he couldnât really tell me. To make matters worse, Lance Corporal's wage seems to be between band 5-9 on the scale I have seen ( http://www.armedforces.co.uk/army/listings/l0104.html ) So would a higher band start around band 7? Or is the fact youâre Lance bump you up too band 5 and thatâs your higher pay? I am terribly confused, and would like to get a rough idea now to help with my budgeting (I am probably going to be abusing my overdraft whilst in basic, knowing what I will earn now will be a big help).
