JobEvaluation (JE) - Frequently AskedQuestions:

HowhavetheTrade Supplements been designed and howwerethe thresholds between the4Supplementsdetermined? UnlikePay2000, Supplement boundaries arenot governed by a fixed-point boundary. Instead,informed by the JE evidence,the Trade-to- Supplement placement reflects Tri-Service judgement/agreement on which Trades should featurewithin each of the 4Supplements. This judgement includes considerationofthe need to differentiate(or target) pay, the importanceoffairness and the need for affordability. ■

Will therebeareviewofTrade Placements in Supplements? Theplacement of Trades to Supplements will continue to be based on JE evidence and therewill be arolling programmeof JE reviews of each Trade by the Joint Services JobEvaluationTeam. Themechanism forfuturereviewofthe placements of Trades to Supplements will be considered by the Defence People and Training Boardlater thisyear. ■

What arethe 6factors utilised forJE?

1. Knowledge,skills and experience needed forthe post and the range of applicationrequired.

2. Complexityand mental challenge of the job.

3. Judgement and decision-making, and the impactofthe job’s output on the success of the organisation.

4. Use of resources (Personnel, Equipment, Budgets etc); the levelofsupervisionundertaken and the jobholder’s influence in theorganisation.

5. Communication; the levelofinternal and external communications and their significance.

6. Working conditions; healthand safety aspects,bodilyconstraints andphysical environment of the job in question.

WhyareOfficers not subjecttothe PaySupplementapproach being applied to Other Ranks (ORs)? AsOfficers arenot exclusively employedonaTradeorspecialisation basis,their annual salarycannot be determined in the same wayasORs. JE forOfficersindicates that most oftenthereisinsufficientdifferencein JE scores to differentiate paythrough Supplements,especially when combined with the employment/ career pattern. ■
