Job Description Workshop
Job Descriptions at UBC are both an art and a science
Jobs at UBC are reviewed to determine what duties are performed and therefore what job family they are part of
There are 38 M&P Job Families on the UBC campus. Each Job Family has a description that correlates to M&P Occupational Guidelines. The guidelines are used to determine a position’s level by assigning minimums and scope that are unique to each
M&P IT guidelines have 8 levels from A-H
Look at summary and core duties
Pick the one that reflects the main focus of individual’s job > 50%
Elaborate on summary
enter specific duties currently performed by individual
M&P IT Guidelines
Identify the individual’s current classification
enter remaining details into Job Description
Locate ladder. Read description
Based on current level, locate JDs that apply (likely 2)
Look at the job ladder description to find the right ladder for the staff member. This should be the ladder that describes >50% of their job
Find the templates that align to their current compensation. There is likely 2. Choose the one whose summary and core duties most apply.
If you don’t find one that applies, contact HR before you start writing a new job description
