Job Families are groupings of jobs with similar functions, roles, or skills. All staff positions are assigned to a job family during the classification process based on the general roles, functions, and skills needed for that position.
Each job family consists of different levels, or job classifications. Once the appropriate job family has been selected, the job classification is determined based upon the duties performed, scope of responsibility, level of skill, education requirements, and the potential impact the position has on the University’s operations.
There are a total of 24 job families and 83 job classifications within the University’s Staff Classification System. Explore each job family below:
