The NHS Staff Council's Job Evaluation Group (JEG) provides expert advice, information and training for employers on the implementation of the NHS job evaluation scheme and is responsible for producing the NHS job evaluation handbook.

The NHS job evaluation scheme measures the skills, responsibilities and effort required for a job, and allocates it to an Agenda for Change pay band. This is achieved by matching jobs to national job profiles or evaluating jobs locally, to set the basic pay for staff.
