Trainee - Anyone with less than 6months experience
It is important to ask how the training in these positons is carried out and if these positions a genuine training posts or a excuse for low pay.

This is clearly not the case with the cambrian ad as if you work out the pay then its only a couple of quid under minimum diggers wage and doesnt state that is for everyone with less than 6months exp. but on the other hand another pipeline company pays trainees who are a blanket anyone less than 6months 6.30 ph which comes in way under and having worked for said company can assure you there is no training system in place whatsoever!!

But my main issue is that whether theres actually training available or not (which is obviously a huge issue) but that the widespread use of the trainee title is undermining the wages for new starters as it introduces a new grade before you reach the dizzy heights of digger grade 1. As it says in bajr payscales suitable for students with the university systems funding the way it is the lack of new diggers who stay is only intensifying and it is realy disheartning to see these people come through and be exploited this way.
