Job Evaluation and HERA - Higher Education Role Analysis

All roles at the University are graded using the HERA or Higher Education Role Analysis framework.

Designed by the Education Competencies Consortium (ECC) and Higher Education institutions, HERA ensures equal pay for work of equal value, by providing a consistent framework and fair evaluation methodology.

Roles are evaluated against 14 key skill areas that are applicable to a wider range of roles, for example communication, problem solving or knowledge and experience.

Supporting evidence and role requirements are carefully assessed, and a score is allocated to each of these areas. The grading of a post is then assigned based on the total score.
