This guidance covers the 14 ‘elements’ that make up the job evaluation scheme. It is intended to help you to write a written submission to the Grading Appeal Panel and to prepare for the appeal hearing itself.
The appeal panel will have a copy of your job description and your statement of the grounds for your appeal. At the meeting, the panel will ask questions for clarification and will give you an opportunity to explain why your role is not correctly graded.
An explanation of each element is provided and a number of questions are posed in relation to each element. Some of these questions may seem rather obvious but the intention is to help you identify the activities and responsibilities that are typical of your role (not just the most recent, rare or unusual ones). The main requirements of your role will be analysed, not activities or responsibilities you have become involved in for personal interest.
