Role evaluation is the process used to determine the grade for a role. The aim is to grade jobs fairly and ensure equal pay for work of equal value.
At York, we use two systems:
All jobs in Grades 1-8 have been evaluated using the HERA system. When a job is evaluated it gets a points score which determines the grade. The job is then given a HERA role.
When does a role need evaluating?
When changes in the type of work needed lead to new or changed job descriptions, they must be checked by HR. This can be part of a recruitment or restructuring process, or a reflection of more gradual changes to a role.
Speak first to your HR Adviser. They will check the job description/person specification and tell you if:
- it's still an appropriate match for the existing HERA role
- it can be matched to a different HERA role
- it needs to be formally evaluated
If you need to review a role at Grade 8 or above, the review will need to use the Hay system. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for support with this process.
