Recognition of Responsibilities
All field positions from Head of Mission to Watchman (national and international staff positions) are scored in the International Field Function Grid, using the same methodology and a common set of weighting criteria – thus ensuring transparency and consistency. The international salary structure is based on the IRFFG. Therefore, the salary level of a job will depend on its function level in the IRFFG.
There are 5 professional groups and 15 function levels. The international staff global salary grid consists of 7 levels. Based on responsibility level, some functions have been clustered and connected to one single salary level. The table below shows the remuneration system progression:
