The pay scale placement depends on the qualification (either pay development A , B, C or D). Advancement occurs once yearly until the final pay scale point has been reached. On first appointment, you are placed according to your accrued seniority according to the provisions set out in the collective agreement. Thus, if you have accrued 18 months’ employment which accrue seniority, an MA/cand.mag. will be placed on pay scale point 4 with advancement to pay scale point 5 after six months.

Public sector salary is agreed as gross pay. This means that the 17.1 percent pension contribution is paid in addition to the gross pay. The total pension contribution is paid by the employer and pension contributions are therefore not subtracted from your salary.
