Salaries & Allowances


The Institutions offer a competitive remuneration package. There is a single pay scale for AD and AST positions with 16 grades (each with 5 seniority steps). Staff automatically advance through the seniority steps within a single grade. They move up one step every two years until they reach the last step in the grade, whereupon further progress requires promotion​ into the next grade.

Each promotion up the ladder from grades 1 to 16 provides an equal percentage of salary increase. The remuneration package also includes a system of allowances – household allowance, dependent child allowance, education allowance, expatriation allowance, annual allowance towards the cost of travel to the place of origin, and others. Other benefits include Health Insurance and a pension scheme. Detailed information about the above can be found here.
