REME Pay scales

Discussion in 'REME' started by Krieg-Hammer, May 4, 2010.

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. Hello,

    I am struggling to find a sheet that has all the pay scales for each trade and class in the REME. Any help on this would be much appreciated.


    Cheers

    Doesn't work like that any more.

    REME are on the same pay charts as the rest of the army, higher or lower band depending on trade.

    You get to leapfrog an increment level on achieving class 2, and again on class 1. (AIP - advanced increment progression)

    For the techs on higher band, they revert to lower band if they go down the artisan route. Artificers stay on high band.
     
  3. Further to this, you will be able to find what level of pay band (High or Low) trades for the A&S are in the Personnel Administration Manual, you can find this on the Army Electronic Library under:

    G1 – Personnel and Administration
    Personnel Administration Manual
    PAM Part 2 – Regular Army Administration Procedures
    Chapter 2 – Service
    Annex A to Chapter 2 to Part 2 – Pay 2000 EQ and Related Pay Ranges
    Appendix 9 – REME EQs

    You can see that all Crafty’s are on the lower pay band, and although a previous DEME(A) stated that there was no ‘Private’ rank in the Army getting paid on the Higher Pay band, you can see some of the trades in the Royal Engineers and Musicians (REME Band!) are!
     
  4. Just to clarify this, all LCpls in REME should be on HIGH pay band? Thanks
