Grading and reviews

Grading and reviews at the University of Essex fall into three areas: job evaluation and grading, annual review, and appraisal and personal development.

Job evaluation and grading

For professional services staff, the HERA process is used to match new posts to grades and to review the grading of staff in existing roles. Grading of academic and research staff is carried out through their annual review process.

Annual review

The annual review process for academic and research staff covers grading, permanency, promotion and increments. The annual review process for professional services staff covers the award of additional/discretionary increments and lump sum payments.

Appraisal and personal development

Our Appraisal and Personal Development Scheme is an annual process that promotes lifelong learning and professional development for staff, and engaging staff with achievement of the University’s strategic aims.
