DC Pension

Having given much thought to pensions until now but at 40 I need to be more attentive.
What is normal percentage amount paid and matched by a decent employer these days ?
Unless your in the public sector there doesn’t to be any DB schemes for new staff ?

Defined Benefit pensions are for too expensive for commercial organisations to cover, which is why only governments now give them and even this is farcical, but reality.

My employer pays 2% above whatever i pay. So I pay 4%, they pay 6%.

It very likely depends on the sector too.
In the I.T. sector, I've seen employers match up to 5% of employees contributions. Maybe raising it after 5 years of service in some cases.

No employer is forced to have any pension scheme or make any contributions for its employees. In those cases it's up to you to have a private pension scheme.

My employer pays 10% regardless of employee contribution and then matches employee contributions above that although age depending. Currently I pay 2% and they pay 12% so 14% in total.
