The above does not take into consideration that the AIW salary is for a role that does not require working shifts but 8am to 5pm. The hourly rate of an AIW is apparently uplifted by 1.5x if they work after 5pm of a weekday and 2x if they work weekends.
HETO salary (source 03/2018 indeed.co.uk):
|after 9 months||£22,637.00|
|20% shift allowance||£4,527.40|
AIW salary (source Kier Highways):
|Wages & Salary||£42,822.00|
|Bonus & Incentives||£17,269.20|
An AIW is charged to drivers, fleets and Insurers (Third Parties) at about £65 to £73 / hour, 8am to 5pm. But because the AIW works ‘core hours’, 8am to 5pm, after 5pm they are paid time-and-a-half and Third Parties are charged at about £100 / hour. Of a weekend, the AIW is paid double-time and Third Parties are therefore charged at £130 to £146 / hour.
