Any team leader should be on around £40000 wage give or take the area you work.

The reality is somewhat different unfortunately.

True but that won't change until people start to realise what they are worth in this industry. 

 

If you can't even get £100 a day then you need to move on if possible as I'm sure there are firms out there that would snap you up.

I think £160/day is strong on the books, but £100/day is taking the piss.

He is worth more Khriss but he is North West! About 120.00 is average but even as low as 100.00 is not uncommon :(

If what he says he has ticket wise is right he is worth 120 + as there aint that many guys about with 34&35 and if he has plenty of expieriance in wind blown and does it with out his arse going worth more than the 120 every day,

Hi all, 

 

I'm doing a bit of research before asking for a pay rise from the company I work for. I work predominantly on the ground, though have the climbing ticket for rescue purposes. 

I'm a permanent employee with the usual package that comes with that.

 

Any suggestions gratefully received 🙏😀

 

I also have a pre 1997 licence so I can drive Truck/trailer combo up to 12t.

 

Thanks in advance 👍

Just a bit of clarification, do you have any numbers after the bit where it says you can drive up to 12t combo truck and trailer.  Ie 107

I totally agree mate, you’re spot on.

 

Industry rates have been depressed for years, across the board.

 

It’s like anything though, if enough people are prepared to endure it nothing will ever change.

 

I would stretch to £160/day for the OP freelance, not on the books.

 

I’ve got some good customers, but still need to win jobs on price, and I’m in fat, minted Kent.

 

The dream of £1k/day for standard 3 men truck and chipper would just find an empty diary.
