Job Evaluation

All jobs carried out by NHSGGC staff covered by Agenda for Change (AFC) terms and conditions are graded using the NHS Job Evaluation Scheme.

New or Changed jobs

When a post holder and their manager agree that a post has or will significantly change a re-evaluation of the post may need to be carried out.


A postholder can request a review of the outcome of a changed job with the agreement of their manager. All review documentation must be submitted within 3 months of notification of the grading decision.

New jobs

When a new job is created and the pay band is determined, this is checked again (6 months to 1 year later).

  1. All new jobs must be authorised by the Director/Head of Service and submitted into the Job Evaluation process via the Head of People and Change.
  2. If the new post is part of a wider service change, involving more than one post, then all job descriptions established should be submitted
  3. Posts can change over a period of time but for most the job evaluation outcome will not normally be affected unless there are significant changes
  4. When the duties of a job have changed significantly then this should be addressed through the New and Changed Job process.
  5. When a job has changed significantly the following must be provided: · A revised job description should be submitted and the agreed proposed national profile. · The original job description, CAJE matched job report and national profile; · The changed job submission pro-forma detailing the changes to the skills, responsibilities, effort or environmental aspects of the post.
  6. The content of our job descriptions must reflect NHSGGC organisational values and behaviours.
