Hi, I'm hopefully going to be joining the navy as a submariner (etme), possibly starting basic training this year sometime. I've had a good look on the RN website regarding pay and it gives a general idea but I was hoping I could get more accuracy. First of it gives a chart of pay by rank, which for able rate is 14k to 29k. So basically my question is how and when does it go up? Is it yearly or what? My next question is about the additional pay. It says submariners receive a daily supplement on top of normal salary of between 12 and 27 per day. Is this literally every day as in 365 days/year or 5 days/week or what? I understand the extra 15 per day at sea that seems pretty clear. When I asked in the interview I was just basically told that the pay is very good and to check the website for more accuracy on that. Thanks.
