    This was advertised back in Feb 12 with a salary of 35k. At least they have upped that by 5k.

    Personally I think the job is worth more than this. The level and spread of responsibility would suggest so. Any fuel qualified people out there, I'd negotiate on this one. On the original offer, after I commented, saying they were underpaying for this job, they came back and said this was base salary depending on experience.

    The fact the post is still open 4 months later says a lot about the salary: too low.

  4. Salary is always negotiable so if you have good experience and the company feel you would be worth the extra investment you should be able to up the basic no problem.
    I will submit interested candidates CV to the client.
