star this property answer text <p>Grades across the Civil Service are defined by job weight, which is a measure of a job’s complexity and responsibilities. Job weight in the Department of Energy and Climate Change is determined by a job evaluation system called JESP (Job Evaluation for Senior Posts) for the senior Civil Service (SCS) and JEGS (Job Evaluation &amp; Grading Support) at grades below SCS.</p><p>A formal JESP evaluation should be undertaken where:</p><p>· a new post is created and the pay band is not obvious</p><p>· an existing post changes significantly, raising doubt about the pay band</p><p>· posts are on the boundary of different pay bands</p><p>· posts are subject to a grading review</p><ul><li>a pay banding decision is disputed.</li></ul><p>DECC has not undertaken any formal JESP assessments in the past 12 months.</p><p>Grade boundaries and job roles for staff below the SCS are initially assessed by reference to the Department’s grading guidance. Before advertising a new or existing post the recruiting manager should assess the grade of a post using the guidance. Any changes to the grade of a job role must be authorised in local business area by senior managers.</p><p>JEGS is only formally used when the appropriate grade cannot be clearly determined by reference to the grading guidance. In most cases, roles will fall readily into a grade on this basis.</p><p>No central records are held of local grading assessments. One formal JEGS assessment has been carried out within the last 12 months.</p>
