12 Weeks Pay for Angard Workers

29 Apr 2020, 06:15

So there’s a few Angard workers, some 6-8 weeks into the job and we’ve been hearing that the rate can go up to £14ph after the 12 weeks! :dance How true is this & can anyone help with what the actual rate would be both during normal day hours and for Bank Holiday & Sunday. Bit disheartening working at the minimum wage during this time. :sad: Thanks

The rates vary across the country.
I have a copy of the Tariff Sheet for my MC. (Attached)

Three years ago, when I became AWR qualified, my pay rate increased by 56%.

Wow, thanks for this! What a Big difference!! So Sunday & night shift is where the coins@! :thumbup Worth putting in the extra hard work!! So busy rn but I guess that means more shifts! How were you able to get a copy of this & I noticed this was April last year, so has it gone up again? Can you clarify, some workers are saying that you cant have a day off before those 12 weeks, otherwise you wont qualify? So to @least do 1 shift a week. How true is this?? Lot of qs but with 3 yrs, you seem to have the experience! :)

1 You must do at least 1 shift per week
2 You can have gaps of up to 5 weeks but if you do this it will take approx 60 weeks to clamber to the higher rate.
3 The money may me on the Sunday night shifts but ANGARF staff only get those if
a) Your face fits
b) The MC is truly desperate (as they are at the moment)
C) Most Angard shifts are either 18:30 to 22:00 Monday to Friday. Or overnight.
d) Monday’s is usually when they invariably want staff, Tuesday’s also. Friday’s a a little.
Otherwise it can be ‘pot luck’

In ‘normal’ times it’s usually not possible to pay rent/mortgages on the basis os working for Angard.
Many staff are either retired, with a pension or have a day job.

Pay hasn’t risen since April 2019.
When a pay rise comes in, I ask the for the Tariff Sheet.
They happily send it out to those who ask

That’s correct - you need to work at least one shift a week. The rate goes up on your 13th payslip - if you have a week off it will take a week longer to reach the higher rate.

Be aware that any hours over 38 hours are classed as overtime and - crazily - are paid at a lower rate. So beware working a Sunday if that takes you over 38 hours coz that entire shift is allegedly paid at the lower overtime rate.

So helpful thanks! Made life easier, to 'just know'. 3a) Controversial, I really hope it's not like that with the JoinedUp system in place, or am I being naive?? :sad: I understand that the role is not enough for a normal income but will make the best out of a dire situation! Thanks again for sharing! :thumbup

Good to know about the Sunday overtime clause, they really don't like giving out much it seems!
