Role Analysis (HERA) Overview

Role analysis (also known as job evaluation) is a systematic approach used to determine the relative value (or size) of roles within an organisation by measuring the demands and responsibilities of the role (but not the performance of the individual undertaking the role). The University has used HERA (Higher Education Role Analysis) to facilitate the role analysis process and all roles have been put through the system to determine their grade on the nine grade structure. New roles continue to be added to the grading structure via the role analysis of job adverts and further particulars.

All non academic roles currently graded 1-8 and some teaching and research roles can apply to have their grade reviewed via the HERA Grading review process.  Academic and most senior teaching and research roles can apply for promotion via the Academic promotions.
