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).
