Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone tell me if the rates of pay are dependant on your age at joining.

    I've applied for MCD and I'm 24 yrs old, will I just go straight to the bottom of the pay bracket (around £16K at completion of training by the looks of things?) And although I'm not joining as an Officer, would having a degree affect the pay packet?

    Also for MCD what is promotion like/after training what rank will you hold?

  2. You'll be paid peanuts with the rest of the monkeys boy.
  3. Your degree means nothing to yor pay. 6k after 6 months live the dream

    Ratings pay, unlike Officers pay, is not influenced by academic qualifications, vocational or otherwise.

    Ratings pay is the same regardless of age upon joining.

    Divers, once qualified, earn over 300 GBP per month specialist pay on top of the flat rate of pay.
  5. LMAO!!!!!
  6. "Can anyone tell me if the rates of pay are dependant on your age at joining."

    Age-related pay! :laughing3:

    Sure. At 24, you get your own cabin too.

    The DIs at Raleigh are gonna LOVE you!
  7. You will be pleased to hear that Divers are one of the few branches that are in the higher pay band as ABs
  8. Few? Most are.
  9. i thought only med and comm techs are on the higher payband at AB.

    AET's are on the lower payband - surely a travesty of the highest order!!
  10. When I was a lowly AB dabber I was higher payband, AC's are too.
  11. Im not certain but i dont think WS are hgher band and ETs are deffinatly not.
  12. Er wait, is it not still true that sprogs under 18 get less pay than their oppos?

    I always thought that was the case.

    Maybe I am just going senial from all the drugs I have been doing as a civvy.
  13. Nope.
