HERA Role Profile Explained

As part of the job evaluation process a HERA Role Profile is produced for all roles undertaken by PS staff through the use of job evaluation software. The profile itself is made up of a series of headings in which alphabetical letters are generated that equate to an overall numerical point score. However, the profile does not specify actual tasks/duties undertaken in the role and does not act as a replacement for a job description.

Individuals may request to see the HERA Role Profile assigned to their own role but not that of other individuals/roles. To request to do so, you will need to contact your People and OD Partner.
