Staff roles and job content

Support staff roles and job content are being analysed in a pilot scheme supported by  Unison and amicus (MSF Section).  The pilot will use the Higher Education Role Analysis (HERA) system, which has been in development since 1995.

Around 60 members of staff will be interviewed by human resources, managerial and trade union nominees.

A project team led by Linda Mortimer-Pine will report to a steering group chaired by the next Pro-Vice-Chancellor for staff, Professor Diane Shorrocks-Taylor.  The results will be reported to University committees in the autumn.

National discussions about the application of role analysis to academic staff are continuing and the University is waiting for the outcome of these discussions before deciding its approach.  Whilst the Joint Negotiating Committee for Higher Education staff has endorsed the principle of role analysis as a means of assessing relativities within HE Institutions, the AUT has not agreed that HERA, or other alternative schemes, such as Hay, are appropriate.
