Strange how these positions NEVER state the minimum starting salary. I guess, all taken into consideration, it's little better than the minimum wage !
Please contact Ben@castle-climbing.co.uk
He will be very happy to answer all queries with regards to the positions available.
How flexible do you need to be? I can touch my toes...
I would expect London pay to be much more than Swansea pay.
What's wrong with putting a starting salary? The post is quite long, gives a fair bit of detail about your requirements - I would have thought salary is basic information, which should be included, IMO.
