Remuneration at the KBA is clearly regulated:
For us, fair, gender-independent payment and clear working conditions are standard. Remuneration is not based on your negotiating skills, but on your job. As everywhere in the public sector, we have fixed pay scales for civil servants (Bundesbesoldungsordnung A) and pay scales for pay-scale employees (TVöD Bund).
For our pay-scale employees, the Federation regularly negotiates new collective agreements with the trade unions. All collective bargaining employees benefit directly from these negotiations with regular increases in pay. The salaries of civil servants are usually adjusted in line with the collectively agreed increases.
There are several pay or grade groups, both in the collective bargaining sector and for civil servants. Assignment to a salary or remuneration group is generally based on your educational qualifications and primarily on the tasks you perform for us.
In turn, there are several grades or pay levels in each grade or pay group. The longer you have worked for us, the higher the level to which you will be assigned. New employees usually start at level 1, although relevant professional experience may be taken into account. When you are hired, we will check your professional experience individually with regard to the level assignment.
You can use the Federal Office of Administration’s salary calculator to get a more accurate picture of the gross and net amounts of the various pay or grade groups. You can also get an overview with the salary and remuneration tables (Bundesbesoldungsordnung A for civil servants and TVöD Bund for pay-scale employees).
Collectively bargained employees also receive an annual special payment in accordance with the applicable collective agreement provisions. Furthermore, the employer also pays into an additional pension scheme and there is the possibility of deferred compensation for the employee’s own old-age provision.
