EUMETSAT became a formal member of what is known as the Co-ordinated Organisations on 1 July 2012. This is a well established forum for discussing and reviewing the remuneration, allowances and pension arrangements for international civil servants of the following international organisations based in Europe: OECD, NATO, Council of Europe, ESA and ECMWF.
Staff posts are graded on the basis of the duties and responsibilities of each post, as well as the minimum level of formal qualifications normally required to carry out the duties. Administrative support posts are graded from B2 (lowest) to B6 (highest). Management and Technical/Professional posts are graded from A2 (lowest) to A6 (highest).
In addition to a basic salary, you may be eligible for a number of significant additional benefits and allowances. Entitlement to these allowances is dependent on your personal and family circumstances. EUMETSAT remuneration is paid after deduction of an internal tax and is exempt from national income tax.
Social Security & Pension
You, and generally your family, will be affiliated to EUMETSAT's own comprehensive social security system, which includes health insurance, long-term care insurance, death benefits and unemployment benefits.
You will also be affiliated to the EUMETSAT Pension scheme (for which you pay a percentage of your salary which is increased by a larger organisational contribution). Retirement pensions accrue to those Staff members who have completed 10 or more years service with the organisation. A severance grant is payable to those leaving with less than 10 years service.
