Very good of Spanset to offer the job direct to a caving/mining audience I thought.  It's not my thing but it might just appeal to someone on here.

I also understand that putting your salary history on the table is not unusual.  Apparently it helps a company and applicant set the right sort of balance in any offer that is made.

See where your coming from but being both an employee and employer in my life its usually done to see how little a company can get away with paying, its a bit like the words " competitive rates of pay " and we all know what that means , pretty much the same .   ;)

Fair enough. If they are supplying a salary guide, then if they ask for salary history, both parties have information where they can strike a balance.
