    Saw a job advertised working in Logistics on camps in Iraq
    Wages are negotionable
    Can anyone give a pointer on what they should be

  2. Depends which Company is offering the job and what the job entails. Are you Logistics Manager or one of the storemen?
  3. depends on the job, I asked this at a close protection forum ( Closeprotectionworld.co.uk )and the going rate that came back was between £170 to £400 a day.
  4. Hmm, $100k - $125k pr year, tax free if you stay for a full tax year.

  5. if you're log manager i'd say ceiling of around $500 a day to be honest, not much more. if you're a norman, closer to $400/$350 mark a day. Most guys on the ground (shooters) arent getting much more than that, obviously TL's etc will get slightly more. its all company dependant though.and if you get paid in £ you're ok, $ is a bollox at the minute with the exchange rate. i've been here for 3 years all over the country, so am only relaying what i've heard from people in the likes of KBR etc.
  6. KBR pay $84000 for ROWPU ops, which was at the lowest end of the scale, everyone else was on more. PM for more info if you need it.
