How Long Does It Take Before You Earn A Decent Salary In The Public Sector?

    I've applied for a Temp Clerical Role with my local Co Co. Did well on the tests and have been placed on a panel. Hoping to get an interview soon.

    The only problem is that the salary is abysmal. Ideally I'd hope to be made permanent. I've heard it doesn't take long to work up to a decent income in the public sector, but with the current cost of living etc, I'd like a rough idea of how long I'll be living on own brand beans on toast.

    Anyone have any experience with or advice on this?
