The Job Evaluation process is in place to set salary levels of all Scale 1 Professional Staff positions based on what is expected of the role. The Job Evaluation system used by the University is based on the Price Waterhouse system.
Job Evaluation determines the level of a position based on the requirements of the position, not the staff member's skills within the position. The University Remuneration Policy outlines where in the level a staff member should be placed when appointed.
The annual Performance & Development Review (PDR) process allows for movement within a level subject to satisfactory performance.
Ten criteria are used to assess the level of a position:
o Scope of work
o Problem solving
o Freedom to act
o Impact/results of discretionary decisions
o Interpersonal skills
o People management

The Job Evaluation Committee is in place to fairly assess all Professional Staff positions. The Committee is made up of members from around the University. The role of the committee is to gain an understanding of positions and evaluate them in an impartial manner.
The Committee usually meets every two weeks (occasionally every three weeks) on a Wednesday. The agenda for the meeting closes on the previous Monday. You can speed up the Job Evaluation process by ensuring you provide all the correct documentation at the time of application.
The Department will normally be informed of the provisional evaluation and of the date of the meeting at which the Job Description will be considered. The final evaluation will be advised within two days of the meeting.
Please note: In some cases, the Committee may require further clarification or information, which can extend the process. Therefore, it's very important to provide a Job Description that fully explains the nature of the supervision and budgetary responsibilities, extent of contact within and outside the University etc.
