Compensation for all ADB staff is “market-driven”, with reference to the appropriate global or local market from which a specific position is recruited. Salaries are determined according to the level of responsibility of the jobs and are reviewed annually to ensure that ADB’s compensation remains competitive.
For international staff positions, salary is set with reference to the global market for equivalent jobs. It is denominated in US dollars and is not subject to taxation by many ADB member countries. Some ADB member countries have retained the right to tax the ADB salary and emoluments of their citizens or nationals. ADB encourages all interested staff or prospective staff to consult independent tax experts on their income tax liabilities.
For local staff (national staff and administrative staff) positions in headquarters and field offices, salary is set with reference to the appropriate local market for equivalent jobs. It is usually paid in local currency and is not subject to taxation by many ADB member countries. However, as stated above, certain countries have retained the right to tax the ADB salary and emoluments of their citizens or nationals, and ADB encourages affected staff to consult a tax expert on their tax situation. There are 7 administrative staff job levels and 7 national staff (or local professional) job levels. ADB offers an overall compensation package to national staff and administrative staff (NS/AS) that is designed to be locally competitive.
