I think the salary range is abit off.
The salary range is not off, trust me. However, salary that I depicted does NOT include something called 'appointment' allowance. Basically, rank is not equal to appointment. A person with a high DXO rank might get a low appointment and vice-versa. Additionally, higher up the ladder, some DXOs take up dual appointments due to lack of capable people. Hence, they get additional allowances too. So it all depends on which appointment and department you get. A DX10 with an appointment of nursing officer would get a lower pay than a DX10 with an appointment of senior safety officer. Both can be same rank, but in a highly safety-conscious service such as SAF, the safety officer is paid much more.

Also, experience counts for alot, a 45-yr old retired MAJ or COL who jumps to the DX line and is a DX10 would earn much more than a fresh grad who worked his way up to DX10.

Of course same rank can have different earnings la. The issue is that the pay grade range is super larger for each grade. I disagree with high rank low appt, and low rank high appt. Rank is closely pegged to appt. You can't be a DD with grade 10, or an SO at grade 14.

Well I've seen it happen. In a sense, its more common for the medical corps. There is a main HQ and there are medical centres. So a nursing or dental officer can start at either side, at HQ or at a medical centre. After awhile, they will both rank up. However, the guy at HQ would probably take up a more managerial positions because thats what the HQ gears them towards. While his peer in the medical centre is still just a dental / nursing officer. They can choose to go to HQ or vice versa but being comfortable in their working environment, some choose not to switch over to HQ. Hence, you might see a high ranked Dental or Nursing officer at a medical centre and a lower/equivalent ranked one at HQ that is, by appointment, their bosses, although they are only the boss in an administrative sense.

Most MINDEF jobs are sensitive, so a certain level of security clearance is required. Your personal history or background may not be suitable perhaps.
