Value for money

Hi, I just read your advert for this role, was very interested. But for this role and the complexities that I feel the role would entail. I would feel that a higher wage would be offered.

With respect, you've lost my interest.

Best wishes


Hi Colin, Thanks for your interest in our role. £8.33 is our starting wage but there is potential for this to increase dependant on experience, and therefore working deeper into all aspects of this role. Please feel free to drop me an email at ashleigh@alpkit.com if you’d like to discuss” to the comment on this page: https://www.alpkit.com/news/sonder-hero-wanted
