    Sorry to bump this thread but I just can't imagine that any one would "network manage" for some of these figures. It blows my mind. Cost of living I've no doubt plays a big part though.

    I wouldn't be able to eat and pay for a studio flat on some of these wages. Still...

    A competent assistant manager should be on 23-25k and a network manager 30k and upwards. At the least.

    Although I am being made redundant, my pay had been SO2 for about 6 years ( real cost going down due to no pay awards )

    I built the school form 40pc's (10 admin on 10 Base2) 30 A4000's and 30 BBC'Bs.. to a 700 Client 11 server network over 10 years.. and over that time the 11,500 starting pay rose to the S02 pay.

    The network now is vastly more complex, with many more systems to consider. But not only is pay still frozen but staff cuts mean I am out the door...

    Are you a teacher as well because surely no one with that level of skill would work for 11,500?

    How could you even live on that. I'm really confused.

    You'd earn more behind the checkouts at sainsburys.

    Sorry, don't understand that.

    36 hours a week at 7 an hour is over 12k

    7 is what sainsburys pay 17 year olds when I was 17, 12 years ago.

    You also have the opportunity of over time and double pay on Sundays.

    er, just read twin--turbo's post and it looks like some of us have missed out on the detail. He's been on SO2 for 6 years, started at 11,500 many years prior to that and worked his way up to SO2. I'm guessing 11,500 was good pay when he started and a hellava lot more than Sainsburys would have paid at the time?

    Hell, he mentions 10Base2 and BBC Micro's - I'm guessing 11,500 was fantastic pay back then

    Reading it again after a coffee I'm sure you're right.

    There are people earlier in this thread talking about getting paid 13k though.

    For a NM 13k is disgusting but is about the entry level we pay our techs here. 15 years ago I thought 9k was great money for my first job, now I'm hard pushed to get out of bed for triple that...

    There's no common ground here- one schools NM is another schools tea-boy and vice versa

    And no-way of comparing salaries between London and North-West of England

    Some NMs are just glorified help-desk bods(not very many BTW) and some are highly skilled, IT experts with management skills and responsibilities and can be SMT members.

    And then there's me of course

    Yes 11,500ish in 1998. it was reasonable back then for the level of work I was doing.

    If I had Certificates for everything I know now, I would be worth much more than SO2 ... But CDP ( no not Cisco Descovery Protocol ) although always stipulated in job evaluations never leads to worthwhile training and certification..
