Public Service - Salary Scale

    I am wondering if someone could clarify what way the salary scale works in the public service?

    I have recently seen an advertisement for a job in the public service and a salary scale is given. It has salary points labelled from 1-13 followed by 3 more salary points labelled with MAX, LSI 1 & LSI 2. I have absolutely no idea how this works. Is the successful candidate able to negotiate the salary or is it based specifically on years of service within the public sector?

    Thank you in advance,
