Job Architecture

Define career paths across your business that map pay progression and development

How it works

So, what is a career framework? It gives you a set of bands designed to ensure fairness and consistency in your approach to pay, bonus and benefits. As more companies make the move towards pay transparency, your career framework provides the backbone by which decisions are made. So when employees have questions about fairness and consistency, the answers make sense.

The first step is for us to understand the role types that exist in your organisation. For instance, do you have more entry level roles? Or more mid-career roles? We will then present you with two options and recommend a customised career framework to suit your needs. This is based on your reward strategy and principles.

Manage talent and succession planning

There are two approaches we can take. The first is to create broad definitions for each level of your career framework. The second is to develop a bespoke job evaluation process, going more in depth with both level and factor descriptions.

Regardless of size or sector, having a clear job architecture in place benefits everyone. We’ve helped charities with just 15 employees, up to global organisations employing thousands. Implementing a fair and transparent job architecture will give you better visibility around organisational design – and enable you to manage talent and succession planning effectively.


It is important to communicate any new changes and policies so that your employees feel part of the process. This can help develop trust and a sense of purpose that leads to more engaged colleagues.

We offer different reward communications packages to suit your needs and help communicate clearly and honestly to employees.
