Human Resources



The Grading and Reward team provides a specialist service within the Human Resources Division and is responsible for assessing the duties of a new or existing post to enable it to be assigned a grade.

The duties of a post are assessed using a job evaluation scheme called HERA (Higher Education Role Analysis).

Further information on job evaluation is available from ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service).

News and updates

  • Development of online Grading System

A new web-based Grading System is being developed to allow institutions to submit grading and re-grading requests quickly and easily online. This will be similar to RAS and will replace the existing grading process which is largely paper and email based. The new system is being designed to be user friendly with step-by-step instructions for users. It will also include some excellent new features allowing Institutions to store and track the progress of their requests at any time. Please watch this space for further information.
