Working at Public Entity Saba
As a civil servant, the priority and day-to-day tasks are serving the community of Saba and ensuring a positive image of oneself and the organization.
The Island Government of the Public Entity Saba is known for its stability, where people work together on the further development of the island.

In total, there are approximately 193 employees.
The salary scales (pay grade) are Public Entity's scales. Every job description is at a particular scale, and each scale has 20 steps (tredes), which determine the room for growth within that function. The workweek consists of 36 hours, and civil servants are entitled to 21 vacation days a year.
In addition to the salary and vacation allowance, civil servants also receive a year-end bonus, equivalent to an entire month's salary (pro-rated). Employees receive 14 months' pay instead of 12.
