Direct entry

The level of compensation (pay scale group) depends primarily on the requirements, the respective target group or position and the associated degree of responsibility.

Non-pay scale remuneration

We pay non-pay scale compensation for higher positions. For this purpose, we have evaluated all functions in the bank and grouped them into career ladders. Within the career ladders, there are various career levels which form the basis for our personnel policy management in line with requirements.

For each career level within a career ladder, there is a basic salary band in line with the market and corresponding performance-related variable compensation. Within these bands we set individual salaries on a performance-oriented and transparent basis. We generally review the salary bands annually and adjust them in line with the market if necessary. The maximum rate of capital-forming benefits (480 euros per year) is also paid in the non-pay scale salary.

The following applies to all, whether you are an apprentice, a student or an employee:

  • Collectively agreed special payment (13th month's salary)
  • Profit-sharing
  • Maximum rate of capital-forming benefits (480 euros per year)
