I know things are a bit tight for a lot of guys at the moment at not being funny in anyway but you need to up that £150 by another £100 for a lead climber with 4+ years experience £90 to £150 won’t get you what your looking for groundies get £90/£120.

If I'd have said that I'd have taken a right kicking, £250/day to run someone else's job isn't far out if it's freelancing/subbing, it would be strong money for someone on the books.

£250 a day full time? I don’t think there are any businesses outside London that could stand paying climbers that personally. 
I think the OP is offering in the right ballpark for a full-time role.

So there are firms offering 31 grand for a salaried groundie and 65 grand for a climber?! 

 

Where's the queue?!

Working off the notional 220 days a year that gives a range of a shade under 19k to just over 33k (at £90-150 per day).   I think that's more than reasonable, regional variations notwithstanding.

 

Also got to factor in being on PAYE with pension, leave, sick pay, annual leave, etc that goes with a full-time position.  Sounds a decent package.  There would be a good queue up here for that.

 

As Eggs says, I might expect a higher daily rate for a freelancer coming in to sub but they have their own running costs and liabilities to factor in so the money you pay them is no where near their take home pay, even before tax.

£150 a day on the books is great money, especially for someone with only 4 years experience. Good look finding the right person treedismantle
