2.16 Job Descriptions

The Employee Engagement Office maintains a database of all Job Descriptions. The job description summarizes the purpose of a job, its primary responsibilities and the minimum qualifications needed to perform the job in terms of educational background, relevant experience, knowledge, skills and abilities. 

The job description should also include the following: job title, date created/updated, education, skill, experience, license, training, and physical requirements as well as working conditions, reporting relationships, a brief summary of the primary purpose and a list of the essential duties and functions associated with it. The list should be general in nature and shouldn’t necessarily include every activity encompassed by the job.  


Any changes or updates to a job description must be provided to the Employee Engagement Office.
