You can also benefit from industry allowances in addition to your monthly salary, depending on the type of contract and industry in which you will be working for us. Your contact will explain whether industry allowances apply and, if so, to what extent, during the application process.
One of our principles is to involve our employees in the further development of our company. We regularly gather feedback on personal interviews, as well as applicant and employee surveys, in order to continuously improve our performance.
We guarantee our employees a contractually agreed monthly salary as a basis. The classification is based on the professional work and/or the scope of responsibility that the employee assumes. This lets us provide fair, market-orientated remuneration.

As transparency is essential for us, we are happy to answer the most frequently asked questions about our collective wage agreement and salaries at FERCHAU. Please contact the colleagues in your “preferred” branch should you still have questions.
- On which factors does the salary depend?
The salary is based on the Federal Employers’ Association of Personnel Service Providers (BAP) collective wage agreement and the classification criteria it sets out. Industry allowances are also possible.
- Why does FERCHAU apply the BAP collective wage agreement?
The decisive factor in our choice of the BAP collective wage agreement is the reform of the German Temporary Employment Act in 2017 and the associated enforcement of the principle of equal pay. The collective wage agreement fully meets our customers’ requirements, and applies the industry allowance model, unlike other collective wage agreements. It meets the minimum standards of the industries in which we operate.
- What are the equal pay rules at FERCHAU?
The BAP collective wage agreement allows us to offer equal pay after nine months as well as equal pay after 15 months. The equal pay ruling that applies depends on the project remit.
- How is the issue of salary regulated for employees in the branches in Germany?
The salaries and conditions of employees in our branches (Back office, Recruitment, Sales) are subject to internal conditions and salary bands. We will discuss your salary expectations with you during the application process.
- How are salaries outside Germany regulated at FERCHAU?
Our collective wage agreement and the associated additional benefits are governed by the law in Germany. Therefore, alternative provisions apply in Austria, France and Spain. A minimum annual gross salary is included in the respective job advertisement for all positions in Austria. We would recommend contacting the local colleagues for more information on remuneration in the respective countries.
- What benefits are offered in addition to the BAP collective wage agreement?
We supplement the BAP's collective wage agreement with our own voluntary additional benefits, which are not customary in the industry: They include holidays beyond the agreed collective rate, as well as special holiday and travel time regulations. Overtime remuneration is also regulated by FERCHAU benefits in addition to the BAP collective wage agreement. Additional benefits are listed further up on this page.
