Human Resources will publish the relevant dates for submission of regrading applications on the HR web site – see the Regrading webpage for dates.
1.2.1 This policy applies to all roles where there has been a substantial increase in the requirements of the job and a significant increase in the level of responsibility.
Discussions regarding the potential for a regrading case may be initiated by line management or the postholder, and following due consideration line management will confirm whether the case can go forward with management support.
If line management do not support the application, the postholder may still request that the case proceeds for further consideration under this process; in this circumstance, line management would work with the postholder to approve an up-to-date job description that provides a true reflection of the responsibilities of the post, and will also provide a separate statement which gives clear reasons for the line management assessment that the post is appropriately graded at its existing level, and the postholder may include an individual statement.
The Regrading Panel will sit a minimum of four times a year.
This will give Schools / Research Institutes / Services flexibility to apply to have a role considered for regrading when the role appears to “best fit” an appropriate higher level in the job family.
Irrespective of whether the application is supported by line management, all paperwork all paperwork should be submitted together and appropriately signed to confirm that all parties have had sight of, and approved as appropriate, the full submission.
