Higher Education Role Analysis (HERA)

What is HERA?

HERA is a job evaluation scheme designed by the Education Competencies Consortium (ECC) together with institutions within the Higher Education Sector that uses a competencies based questionnaire to systematically measure the size of a role compared to other roles in a fair and consistent manner. The scheme applies to the vast majority of roles within The University of Manchester.


It is used to:

  • Assign roles to a grade on the pay spine
  • Re-grade Professional Services roles
  • Support wider People and OD activities such as career development
