    I have an upcoming interview with the HSE and I don't understand the salary scale. I have more than 30 years experience in the private sector where salary is negotiated during interview so have no clue what it means to quote different salaries for the same post.

    Included in the Terms and conditions, under Remuneration is
    The Salary scale as at 1st October 2020 for the post is:
    €50,834 €52,074, €53,527, €54,982, €56,444, €57,748, €59,077, €60,369, €61,653, €63,864, €66,081 LSIs

    Can anyone explain to me what the scale means and how to go about negotiating the best rate for myself?

    Thank you

    The scale is annual increments up to the max. LSI is long service increment. I'm not sure negotiation really comes into it for these roles.

    The scale is exactly what a new employee will be on, unless you are already in the HSE you will start at the first point on the scale which is non negotiable. A current HSE employee who may be on the top end of a G6 will start on the next increment at the 7 scale so may start on the 3rd or 4th point. I have heard of exceptions being made if the new employee was in as a contractor for a period of time before moving into a HSE role.

    You wont be negotiating anything . Its not often you can start at any other point than the lowest on the scale.

    Thank you. Much more straight forward than I thought.

    I know you didn’t ask this but most HSE interviews follow a similar format - competency based. Have examples of situations when you have exhibited each of the competencies (more examples than on your application form) and use the STAR format for answering / situation, task, action, results. Good luck!
