Job evaluation and equal pay

Staff talking

Job evaluation (JE) is a key part of the pay system that covers NHS staff on the 2018 Terms and Conditions of Service (Agenda for Change).

It enables jobs to be matched to national job profiles or allows trusts to evaluate jobs locally to determine which pay band a post should sit.
