Job families/Generic role descriptors

Job Families provide a means of grouping posts together that share similar characteristics/traits, the use of which can help articulate career and development routes, with the writing of job descriptions and further particulars, and when considering development/training needs.

  1. Academic (Teaching and research; Research; Teaching).
  2. Managerial, Specialist and Administrative.
  3. Technical
  4. Operational and Facilities
