When a job doesn’t match to a national job profile, it will need to be evaluated to determine its pay banding.
This evaluation is based on a completed and analysed Job Analysis Questionnaire (JAQ), and is undertaken according to the process defined in the NHS Job Evaluation handbook (chapter 13)
It is important to complete the JAQ fully and provide relevant and clear examples about your job. If the evaluation panel does not have all the information it needs, it will not be able to evaluate the job properly.
Steps to complete the JAQ:
- Open the form.
- Save the form locally to your desktop.
- Complete the form using Adobe Acrobat.
