Promotion pay

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. I have recently picked up my 3rd tape having been a full screw for over 10 years. As I was a full screw for so long, I was on level 7 pay band and earning more than junior level Sgt's. Now that I have been promoted how will this affect my pay? I have heard that you cant take a pay drop when you get promoted however is it right that I will be earning more than Sgt's who have held the rank for a few years?

    I have asked my CofC and nobody can give the official answer.
  2. across and up to give at least 2% rise isn't it ?
  3. i find it hard that as a ten year full screw you dont know the answer yourself!

    You will receive a 5% pay rise (as per AFPRB 2009) which will be used to calculate the appropriate grade and level that they will put you on according to trade (ie: higher/lower band)

    Also you will be entitled to have your Sgts mess dress paid for (well an allowance anyway) which varies according to what cap badge you are
  4. i was in the same position although not as long and i went in at level 3 sgt
  5. Perhaps that's why he was a 10 year full screw :D
  6. Nah just a naughty boy when I was younger :oops:

    And have you tried getting a straight answer off a chief clerk when it comes to pay?
