The NHS job evaluation (NHS JE) scheme is used to determine the pay bands for all posts under the NHS terms and conditions of service (Agenda for Change) and supports equal pay for more than one million NHS staff. The NHS Job Evaluation Scheme measures the skills, responsibilities and effort that are required for a job, and allocates it to a pay band. It does this by matching jobs to national job profiles or evaluating jobs locally, to set the basic pay for staff. The NHS Staff Council Job Evaluation Group (JEG) offers expert training to NHS organisations, along with guidance and advice to support their job evaluation work.
