Hi all.

Just wondering what a newly qualified electrician should be earning? He’s literally just qualified, done his 4 year apprenticeship at college, he’s 18th edition, got his 2391. Good worker, can be sent to domestic jobs to complete on his own. I provide his power tools, I provide him with a van for business use only. What do you think is FAIR being as he is a direct employee and I am running a small business with 5 staff?

cheers

Cards in , 20 days paid holiday and use of company vehicle for work I would say £30,000 - £32,000 pa depending where you are in the U.K.

thats a decent salary enough to keep a youngster happy and still leaves some profit for you

that's almost bang on £15/hour as my thoughts.

Make sure there’s not much disparity from what the more experienced electricians are on and there a clear route and time frame to him being paid the same otherwise he’ll be off in a year or so.

I’ve not been on the books for a while, but isnt there a standard that an electrician MUST be paid? JIB rates?

Might be within the ball park amounts mentioned already.

Agree with this. If your planning on paying him less than the other lads then make it clear why and what he needs to do to get to that pay grade.
