LFEPA response

LFEPA's lowest pay scale is for the small number of Business Apprentices we employ, normally three annually, who are paid the London Living Wage.  In 2013-14 their pay scale was £8.80 per hour; rising to £9.15 per hour in 2014-15.

Otherwise, our lowest per annum pay scales are as follows:

Operational staff (Trainee firefighters)

£25,426

£25,642

£23,288-£27,727

TfL response

The lowest pay scale within TfL is year 1 of the "Modern Apprentice" pay scale. This is in line with the London Living Wage, which TfL are committed to paying as a minimum full time salary. For 2013 this was £16,067 and from November 2014 this was increased to £16,706.  

The lowest pay scale within TfL excluding Apprentices is for Dial-a-Ride Drivers. In 2013-14 this was £22,371 and in 2014-15 this is £23,266.
