    DWP Pay Rise July 1st 5th Jul 09 at 6:22 PM
    I am starting with DWP south east tomorrow as an EO and have been told by a friend who already works there that as of July 1st there was a pay increase for EO and AO positions. Obviously on my start letter, dated 25th June, it states the salary as that advertised when I applied in March, however my friend seems to think that my starting salary will actually be the new higher figure.
    Just looking for any info on this as apparently the pay rise was 4.5% , making quite a difference.
    Many thanks
