Your job level is determined by means of the University Job Classification system (UFO). In this system, your job is classified on the basis of the structural duties you need to perform and is linked with the job level of a UFO profile and the corresponding salary scale.
Your individual salary scaling – the salary scale you have been grouped in – normally corresponds with the salary scale for the job you are doing. However, there may be situations where your individual salary scale is different to the one normally deemed appropriate for the job, for example, when you have just started the job and cannot yet perform all the duties asked of you.
Furthermore, the salary step within the salary scale depends on your experience and background, which will both be compared with your current and future colleagues' experience and background.
