New salaries for high-ranking civil service officials decided


Top officials in the Greek civil service will earn gross salaries of between approximately 1,500 and 4,600 euros per month, according to the new wage structure set out in a circular issued by Alternate Finance Minister Giorgos Houliarakis on Wednesday.

The basic salary for general secretaries at ministries will be 3,231 euros per month. This could rise to 4,631 euros a month if a so-called “responsibility subsidy” is paid. Deputy general secretaries will take home a minimum of 2,800 euros.

Non-permanent staff, such as advisers hired to various government departments, will earn from 1,697 to 2,154 euros per month.
