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.

Please note that while HR recruit replacement resource to manage job evaluation at the University, progression of grading for new roles and re-evaluation of current roles is likely to take longer than normal. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Managers are requested to allow additional time for evaluation and to provide additional notice of requests to support the efficient progression of outcomes. Thank you for your cooperation.
