Apologies if this had been covered before however is anyone able to offer an indication of monthly net take-home salary starting as an FO on a 75% contract?

Obviously very rough guide depending on sector pay so on but give or take £3000 after tax will have you in right ball park.

Is this a new thing or have all new entrant UK based CO-PILOTS always been forced onto a part-time 75% contract?

Is U.K. sector pay subject to full tax?

The problem is not with the new entrant FOs - I am told they were all being given 100% contracts. The problem lies with our current FOs who were being left on 75% contracts whilst new entrants get the good deals. That is directly contrary to our Union agreement and it is the source of great angst among our FOs. If therefore that is changing, that is exactly as it should be. I am told our Union guys are making a very big deal about this to ensure that our current FOs are not disadvantaged at the expense of new entrants. The whole 75% contract thing is really a dead loss and is so random in its application that it is largely unworkable. Like any airline, we have our problems - these 75% contracts are right at the top of that list.

Also, yes - UK sector pay is subject to full UK tax. Hope that helps.

I’ve just been through the NTR application, nowhere was I asked to tick any boxes about paying for rating, it’s not mentioned anywhere. Has there been a change at eJ?

Doubtful... it states on the online job description:

Non Type Rated Co Pilots will complete a full A320 Type Rating (self-funded) with our preferred training provider at the start of easyJet employment.

when I applied for DEC there was a statement which you had to agree or disagree with regarding being ‘willing’ to self fund a type rating, but this does seem to have been removed.

I understand that you get 25 days leave, and if joining as a SFO the fixed roster. How does this all go together. Are you able to effectively take 5 blocks of 8/9 (5 days leave followed by your usual days off) days off pa?

Also, is there any loss of license and death in service benefit?

Many thanks

Leave is done on a closed phase where you can make a bid for what you want, followed by an open phase where you can book any remaining available leave directly through an online system. Leave can be taken as a whole block or individual days. So yes on the fixed pattern if you took 5 days you would get your 7 off days around that block. The first phase is worked on a points based system with popular days like Christmas attracting more points. The lower your points are, the higher chance you have of getting what you want.

There is LOL (which you can top up through the benefits system) and death in service benefit.

Thanks for the quick reply!
I didn't think of the days off before the block. So you get 5x 12 days off potentially every year. Thats great. On paper 25 days looks low. But this must be one, if not the best leave deal in the UK.
Lets hope I perform on the day

Just applied for a DEC position (NTR), I submitted my application with everything filled in and a cv attached and it said the usual "thanks, we're reviewing it and we'll be in touch" but when I clicked on "application status" it says "application unsuccessful". This happened 5 seconds after applying, considering it's nearly 11pm any ideas if this is just a glitch?

Did you tick no to any boxes asking if you’re ‘ok’ with self funding your training?

I would say it might not be a glitch. It sounds like a computer has found something in your application which stops it going any further.

I remember a few years ago when I applied as a FO - having done the online computer tests it said something similar and came back with an unsuccessful almost instantly.

VJW, thanks for the response, no there wasn't anything asking about that, I went through it with a fine toothcomb 3 times and it all looks good, strange thing is when I go back in my application is still active and it gives me the option to edit/resubmit.

No idea on the German contract but my hunch on accepting the Portuguese base is that you would have to wait 3 years before applying for (possibly receiving) a transfer. My reason for thinking this is having joined recently to LGW, the type rating fee is paid by myself straight out my salary for 3 years. Someone joining straight to a Portuguese base has their type rating funded by easyJet. So the 3 years sounds ‘reasonable,’ otherwise I’d do that and get a LGW trasnsfer immediately.
