Job evaluation is a tool the University uses to determine the “size and scope” of a job. It allows jobs to be placed within the University 9 Grade Pay Structure. It focuses as objectively as possible on the requirements of the post rather than the personal characteristics (for example, exceptional performance) of the post holder.
New or substantially changed posts are graded using the Job Matching Process.
A separate Staff Recognition Scheme (STAR) exists within the University to recognise individual or team performance contribution. If a member of staff is temporarily undertaking duties of a higher level then the acting-up policy should be used.
