Kia ora!

There seems to be a bit of mystery around the art of pay-scale, but the employment.govt.nz explains it pretty clearly (https://www.employment.govt.nz/hours-and-wages/pay/pay-equity/equitable-job-evaluation/) and even links you to tools that will help you compare roles within your business as well as across industry.

Job Descriptions don’t need to be intricate. At the core they’re a means for your employee to understand the key deliverables of their role, who they report to, what the required skills or experience are (so they can develop if needed) and any reference to policy that may impact their role.

Happy to help or send you a template that you could adapt if you still need one.
