Procedures for Creating or Updating a Job Description

These two procedures falls under Staff Compensation.  For more information on Staff Compensation, please visit this link.

Procedures for creating a new job description:

  1. The supervisor and unit administrator are responsible for developing a job description for a new position.  
  2. The job description should describe all tasks and responsibilities the incumbent is expected to assume.  The most essential functions of the job should be listed first. 
  3. The unit administrator must submit the job description to Human Resources Services in the correct format.  Please view a sample job description here.  Action verbs are listed first when describing responsibilities. 
  4. Human Resources Services will perform a job analysis and assign it a salary level.  Human Resources Services will contact the unit administrator if there are questions.
  5. Once the job description is approved, the unit administrator should prepare a requisition form to request a position.  The job description should be attached to the form.  The form must be approved and signed by the senior administrator and administrative officer.


Procedures for updating a job description:

  1. There are two ways: the employee can initiate a request with the supervisor or the supervisor can initiate the request.
  2. The supervisor will discuss the change with the unit administrator and senior administrator.
  3. The unit administrator will send to Human Resources Services for evaluation in the correct format.  Please view a sample job description here.  Action verbs are listed first when describing responsibilities.   
  4. If approved by the appropriate administrators, the supervisor must share the updated job description with employees.
