Pay scales

The rates of pay, allowances and other pay-related conditions for HSE employees are approved by the Department of Health. These pay rates are referred to as consolidated pay scales.

These pay scales set out the rates of pay for each grade and include incremental pay (increase in pay). Increments are paid annually. The number of increments paid is determined by your grade.
