work out what you think you are worth

take away £5 per hour

Then you will be close to the JIB pay!!!!!

IIRC you will be classed as an adult trainee and the rate of pay is around £8.47 per hour without travelling allowance.

yes ive looked on the jib website but it doesnt give a difinitive description as to what the difference is between a adult trainee and a senior trainee and any info on trainees doing an adv 2330 apprenticeship.

I can't remember but I worked for 2 companies when I was in my 2nd year of 2330 and they were jib co's and they classed me as an adult trainee. You do also know that when you finish your 3rd year (level 2) the jib still will NOT recognise you as anything other than an electrical improver unless you go out and spend another £600 to get your NVQ 3! I only got told this at the end of my 2nd year but it never bothered me too much as didn't plan on working for a jib co anyway as the pay was too low!

Good for you. I never saw the point as ultimately wanted to work for myself. My third year cost me £930 and I got sick of spending.

Pay could be very low but its always a backup for when work drys up

Not really, I work for a non-jib company and even when work is scarce I earn more than I would working for a jib co.

I worked for a JIB company as an Approved spark and we took on a electrician and he was made up to be on electricians rate told me that even though he was on £11.60 an hour he was still better off by £40 a week from where he was before.

Asked him how come he said that was what firms where paying around Rhyl in Wales. :eek:
