Kenya Ports Authority is among a few parastatals that pay their workers, especially degree holders, good salary.
Salaries at KPA vary depending on experience; qualification and rank in the institution. The highest paid are those individuals who have stayed at the institution for at least 5 years while the lowest paid are fresh graduates as well as casual workers.
Fresh graduates at KPA earn Sh 75,000-Sh 90,000 while managers earn above Sh 120,000.Casual workers earn as little as Sh 25,000.
One encouraging thing about KPA, which deals with customs and clearing and forwarding, is that even if you are earning peanuts you can always make money from other sources within the port.
