I am a newie here.
Just wanted to find out why is there such a seemingly "salary" difference between a volunteer and staff posts with similar qualifications and experience, similar stations for example an international specialist (Fixed term-1 year) with 10 years experience and P3 grade with same qualifications and experience?

Hope you know the difference now. Volunteers gets a stipend , staff/employee gets a salary, contractors get the contract payment.
