Job Families

The University completed a job evaluation exercise in 2006 and introduced the concept of 'job families' to support the pay structure.

A job family is a group of roles that is similar in character, where the role holders are engaged in broadly similar work, or have broadly similar objectives. It describes career groups at a number of different levels, reflecting differences in grades. All the job families are underpinned by the same job evaluation methodology.

The University has six different job families, each of which can be found below:

Administrative Services  (Grades 1 - 5)

Management and Specialist  (Grades 6 - 9)

Operational Services  (Grades 1 - 5)

Research Teaching and Enterprise (Grades 6 - 9)

Specialist and Supporting Academic (Grades 5 - 9) For further information please refer to 'Changes to Academic Staffing Structure' on the HR A-Z. 

Technical Services  (Grades 2 - 6)

All posts within the University have been assigned to a job family and a grade within the job family. All new posts are evaluated to determine the appropriate job family and grade.

The  shows the different grades and indicates which grades apply to which job family.

If you have any further queries please contact your HR Adviser.
