I am confused on pay for officers. The pay scale itself is simple enough, but where do you start as a graduate. I have a degree and my first interview in 2 weeks for Pilot officer, but I still don't know. It says on the website... Non-Graduate Annual Basic Pay Midshipman - Â£14,852 On passing out of BRNC - Â£23,475 Graduate Annual Basic Pay Sub Lieutenant - Â£28,216 - Â£31,188 I understand that I would be on the graduate pay, but was told that this is after you complete your basic training. So what is the pay during training? I need to know as I have a mortgage at home to pay and need to budget.
