star this property answer text <p>The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) uses grading guidance as a tool to help managers and job holders determine the grading of a post. The guidance applies to all BIS staff, except the Senior Civil Service (SCS) and Fast Streamers, who have central grading structures.</p><p> </p><p>Job evaluation is used when the grading guidance alone is insufficient for the manager and job holder to determine the grade of a post. BIS uses a systematic job evaluation system called JEGS (Job Evaluation and Grading Support) for non-SCS staff and JESP (Job Evaluation for Senior Posts) for SCS staff. These have been developed specifically for the Civil Service. It is a systematic process for defining the relative worth or size of jobs in order to establish internal relativities.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The procedure for assessing grade boundaries using job evaluation are:</p><p> </p><p>1. Form a clear picture of the job</p><p> </p><p>2. Refer to grading guidance and where possible allocate to a grade</p><p> </p><p>3. If not, a trained evaluator will evaluate the post</p><p> </p><p>4. The evaluator’s conclusions are quality assured by an appropriate panel which includes trade union representatives</p><p> </p><p>5. HR will communicate the outcome to the line manager</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We do not keep records of how often the grading guidance are used or when job evaluations have taken place. Possible reasons for formal job evaluation might include:</p><p> </p><p>· the recruiting manager, Independent Panel Member (IPM) and Deputy Director cannot agree on the appropriate grade using the BIS grading guidance;</p><p> </p><p>· a new post has arisen and there are limited comparator posts within which to agree the grading;</p><p> </p><p>· a substantial and material change has been made to the weighting and responsibilities of the post;</p><p> </p><p>· an area has been restructured and the boundaries for responsibility and weighting have changed significantly;</p><p> </p><p>· there is sufficient doubt of grading when similar roles are compared across the Department; or</p><p> </p><p>· the Department is undergoing a full grading review.</p>
