Hi all, I'm currently trying to move companies and one has gotten back to me and asked what sort of hourly rate I want, the problem is, is that I don't know what would be a fair price to say as I'm not sure on the going rates.

I've been qualified for a couple if months, a van will be supplied and I'll be on the books, it's all types of work ranging from domestic to industrial and it's in the Midlands, so not London prices.

Thanks in advance

Ask them what they are offering, the Terms and conditions etc, up to you then.

Really difficult one to answer. When I first qualified I had virtually no on site experience, so worked for just under minimum wage for a spark to gain that experience.

You know your worth better than me.

It’s important you are happy with the wage and the employer is happy that they are getting the best out of you for th3 money you are paid.

If you think you have value ask for £20 hour.

If you think you are going to benefit from the experience ask for £12-£15 per hour with the option of the wage going up in 6 months if it’s deemed your are worth it.

Location is another aspect.

JIB rates are a good measure but nearly no one adhere to them any more.

You could always ask for say £20 per hour with yearly reviews or increases for next couple so £20 then £25 and upwards each year with experience.

£20 an hour. They can always knock you down... My Current employer asked me what would be a suitable annual Salary? I asked $20,000 more a year than what they were offering. So I asked them what perks they were offering. That made up for that $20,000 buffer to the initial wage I wanted.
I won’t give you exact figures as they are in Aussie Dollars.
 
If we are talking annual salary . The last time I was cards in was way back in 2009 and was on £30,000 + fully expensed company van for a straight 37 hour working week.
So with wage inflation would probably be more like £35,000-£36,000 in today’s money? This was London wages.

I must say it was quite nice to have the guaranteed wages drop in my bank every month...
 
I remember when £10 ph was the norm for a qualified sparks

Imo £15 is reasonable now once qualified ,

you can even get £11.50 an hour now working in Aldi
