  2. What's the pay £6.50 per hour?
     
  3. Not sure what the pay is. I'm working abroad and a mate asked if I knew anyone that fit the descriptions. I didn't so I thought I'd offer it out to the ex-Army community. I'll try find out tomorrow.
     
  4. Apologies for the late reply in finding out how much the pay is with these jobs.

    The bloke is looking at paying 45-60k US Dollars, with a great package in helping people finding accommodation, transport should they need to relocate.

    As he's an American recruiter these posts seem to come with a lot of benefits that the usual British contracter would when working abroad but it is easier for him to recruit Brits rather than contracting Americans and flying them over.
