What is job analysis and job evaluation?
Local job evaluation is required when there is no national profile, due to the job being unique or significantly different or a match to a national profile has proved impossible. It involves a post holder completing a job analysis questionnaire (JAQ), working with job analysts and line management to ensure the JAQ contains all relevant information, which is then evaluated by a job evaluation panel.

How do I commission a course?
NHS Employers is in the process of releasing a two-day virtual offer for job analysis and job evaluation training. Physical training (both commissioned and centrally run) is currently suspended due to the risks associated with COVID-19.
