The latest 2008/09 Financial year (FY) Rates of Pay, once trained, have not been published on the RM or RN website.

Current published pay rates (2007/08), including the latest (2008/09) Other Rank starting pay (?13.013 per annum)& relevant deductions are already posted here. When the "in service" Rates of Pay are announced officially, I'll update the sticky.

The rates posted by Loz are last years (07/08 FY) gross pay from completion of training & indicate the annual incremental pay rises over the 9 years you increase income, assuming you do not get promoted.

The way increases work are as follows:

You get an annual pay increment pay rise (9 in total) on the anniversary of your joining the Corps. You also get an annual pay rise as recommended by the Armed Forces Pay Review Body (AFRB) which is supposed to keep pace with inflation.

Additional pay is indicated on the link above on the pdf. document. (Flying pay, Seagoing Pay, SF pay etc.)

You get an annual incremental pay rise regardless of where you are serving & if you do not opt for promotion, after 9 years, you hit the top band for that rank & only get the AFRB annual pay awards thereafter. If you get promoted (Which everyone capable should aim for), there's 9 more pay increments at the next rank & so on. Promotion varies, but if you're half-decent you can expect to be a Corporal within 4 to 6 years on average (£24-£30K per annum). The only other way to increase income is to get specialist pay as indicated.

Alternatively join as an Officer with a Degree, 180 UCAS points at A level, 5 GCSE's A*-C including Maths & English & you can Start on £28K.

Pay Scales

NOTE!! - These scales are for last year - every April 1st new scales are pushed out with the years new pay rates which reflect the annual increase. This increase is supposed to keep us in line with inflation...

R.M.: Levels 1-9 – Marine: Levels 5-9 Lance Corporal (or RM passed JCC)
Army: Levels 1-7 – Private: Levels 5-9 Lance Corporal
HIGHER BAND ........................LOWER BAND
Level 9 70.67 25,794.48...............Level 9 59.17 21,597.00
Level 8 67.38 24,593.76...............Level 8 57.10 20,841.48
Level 7 64.48 23,535.12...............Level 7 54.60 19,929.00
Level 6 61.65 22,502.28...............Level 6 52.36 19,111.44
Level 5 58.79 21,458.28...............Level 5 50.26 18,344.88
Level 4 53.17 19,407.12...............Level 4 47.69 17,406.84
Level 3 49.46 18,049.32...............Level 3 43.85 16,005.24
Level 2 44.79 16,348.32...............Level 2 41.55 15,165.72
Level 1 39.24 14,322.60...............Level 1 39.24 14,322.60​

All recruits begin on Lvl 1, LOWER Band and progress up through the levels once a year. This is known as an Incremental Bonus Date or IBD. Your annual IBD (I think) co-incides with the date you joined up - regardless, you go up one increment every year.

The higher pay band is reserved some of the specialist or technical qualifications (jobs) you can do in the corp - for example Telecommunications Technician, Armourer etc.

Any Marine who is promoted to Lance Corporal is immediately placed onto Increment lvl 5 unless he is already there. If this is the case he is moved up one lvl to reflect this promotion.

It is indeed, well spotted.

The second & third sentence of post 16 (above) explains the terminology of the AFPRB Report.

Looks like some's taken the "P" out of opposed, too. :smile:

Assuming you also have the 5 GCSE's & A Levels in addition to the degree, meet the eligibility criteria, pass the Recruiting Test, Medical Examination, Sift interview, Potential Officers Course, Admiralty Interview Board, gain security clearance & meet the minimum standards to be selected as a Young Officer, you would qualify for Direct Entry Graduate Officer starting pay.

Nightmare ....

Had a look at the pay scales for old times sake.

Just disgusting to see how little they still pay the armed forces.:mad:
Surprised to see they pay 'Golden Hello's' to submariners now and a few other extra's. Never bothered when I was a bubblehead.:sailor:
