JEMS is a methodology that facilitates unbiased, consistent, and systematic classification of roles across a wide range of occupational groups (e.g. administration, technical, professional) within the Queensland Government.
Trained evaluators use this methodology to determine a role's work value score. This score is then used to give an appropriate classification level for the role within its occupational group.
How does the methodology work?
A work value score is determined by considering the role's required:
- expertise— the knowledge, skills and experience needed to undertake the role
- judgement— the complexity of the role's requirements as determined by the organisation's environment and the responsibility to resolve problems
- accountability— the scope, impact, influence, independence, and authority of the role
We also consider the position the role reports to, to ensure accountabilities and responsibilities within the hierarchal structure are appropriate.
