Job Groups in Kenya: Civil Servants Salary by Kenyans247(1): Sat Aug 2019 05:08pm
If you are employed by the Government of Kenya, you are placed into categories, which have different salaries attached to them, commonly referred to as Job Group”.

The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) is the main determinant of the job groups and how much civil servants should get.

Following a civil service job evaluation by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC), there has been a raft of changes which merged some job groups and enhanced salaries and allowances of some cadres.

The SRC graded jobs in all the public sector into 19 categories with the lowest-paid civil servant in grade B1 and the highest in grade E4.


The new salary structure above for Kenyan civil servants will be implemented on four phases which started on 1st July of 2017.

There are more than 700,000 civil servants across all sectors in Kenya.


SRC covers the entire Public Sector that is clustered into seven sectors;

The Civil Service

County Government

Service and Regulatory State Corporations

Commercial and Strategic Corporations

Constitutional Commission

Independent Offices and Teaching Service

The Disciplined services

Public Universities, Research and Tertiary Education Institutions

Other allowances that bring a difference in how much in total a civil servant receives at the end of the day include;

For civil servants in hardship areas like remote and rural areas.

Transfer allowance

Upon receiving a transfer, all employees should receive an allowance to facilitate their movement and settling in.
