Contact and support
If you are considering a JEMS evaluation, contact your HR team for advice on whether this is appropriate for your situation.
To contact QSS about JEMS evaluations, call Jeff Chadburn on (07) 3021 5144.
A JEMS evaluation is charged at $125.50 per hour plus GST. With fit-for-purpose documentation, a straightforward evaluation can take as little as 4 hours.
There are 2 types of JEMS evaluations for non-SES or equivalent positions:
- Standard job evaluation service: you provide all fit-for-purpose documentation.
- Full job evaluation service: our JEMS consultant gathers fit-for-purpose documentation with you.
Ideally, you complete the Job Analysis Questionnaire (JAQ) and provide us with a role description. If you require assistance with the JAQ, we can guide you through the form. Alternatively, you may choose to provide the JAQ information at an interview.
The Job Evaluation Management System (JEMS) is an approved approach to job classification in the Queensland public sector. Trained evaluators use it to establish the work value of a role, which is translated into a classification level. JEMS facilitates consistent and systematic classifications across a wide range of occupational groups.
- Contact your HR team to learn whether a JEMS evaluation is appropriate for your situation.
- You provide supporting materials and/or arrange for the appropriate person (usually the role's supervisor) to attend an interview with a JEMS consultant.
- We then evaluate the position and email a detailed evaluation report to you.
- QSS invoices your agency monthly for job evaluations.
Contact your HR team to determine whether a JEMS evaluation is appropriate for your situation.
A standard job evaluation service will be completed within 10 working days of receipt of all required fit-for-purpose documentation.
Full job evaluation services are a consultancy service, with timeframes, deliverables and/or total hours to be negotiated, but these are generally done within 10 working days of our interview.
The information you provide in the Job Analysis Questionnaire (JAQ) enables good quality analysis of multiple aspects of a role. Good analysis results in a comprehensive, realistic evaluation and appropriate classification.
When a position is evaluated, the supervisor’s profile is also considered because, for example, a supervisor’s JEMS profile can restrict the classification level of subordinate positions.
