Job Evaluation Process

Jobs are evaluated under the HERA job evaluation scheme using the following process:

  • Heads of Department, managers and staff, whose jobs are being evaluated, are contacted to discuss the process.
  • Information is collected from the member of staff to find out more about the requirements of the job. Normally this is done through a meeting with a trained job analyst, building on the information already provided in the job summary.
  • The information is used by the job analyst to create a detailed job description.
  • The individual and his/her manager are asked to verify that the job description represents the job.
  • The job description is evaluated by a trained panel using the HERA job evaluation guidelines.
  • The evaluation score determines the grade of the job.
