going rate for a groundie?

Recommended Posts

So whats the going hourly/day rate for a groundie nowadays? Got no idea what to pay someone. 

I guess we could say there's roughly 3 wage brackets here. Zero experience, Moderate experience and amazing make my life a breeze experience....its probably best to have an idea for each as i'm not sure who ill hire yet. I live in the Bristol area as that obviously plays a part in the wage as well. Maybe.

As Les says £100-£150 for experienced.

The £150 rate is for  "no phone"  guys  only 🙂

And doesn’t leave the chipper running all day or stands watching while on the phone!

Does he/she have to jog back from said chipper?
