17,000 to 18,000 for a manager position doesn't seem a lot is that the going rate?
And I winge how much designers get paid I'll keep my mouth shut in future.

I'm assuming the lure of being able to live in North Wales and work for a climbing brand may keep the wages lower?

In reply to Monk: I suppose so I was just shocked such a big brand would pay so little for their sales staff.
I live in Manchester not the most affluent area but the wages are obviously better.

In reply to UKC Gear: I've reread the job descriptions it's office staff not actual sales reps that explains a lot

Not really, they look like pretty standard salaries for that sort of job in the 'climbing industry' to me. Which is why we all tend to get pretty peeveed when we here complaints about the price of kit.

I'd agree (hence the second part of my sentence). Also, I don't think the other two wages for the admin posts are bad at all.

Basically 15-16k for a job that basically only requires only some nous, few computer skills and to use a phone?

I'd say that was pretty good.

Shame, if only you'd had the computer skills you could have applied.
