Using a Job Family Matrix and Description Template

  1. Open the pdf file with the summarized matrix.
  2. Determine the level of job that is needed based upon the duties, responsibilities, skills, education and experience. Note:  The incumbent does not need to perform ALL of the duties/responsibilities listed. If the incumbent performs approximately 70-80% of the listed duties/responsibilities, then the job is a “match”.
  3. Managers/supervisors may want to double check the salary ranges of the level chosen to ensure that it is within budget.
  4. Request a copy of the corresponding standard job description template from your Lead Compensation Analyst.
  5. Enter in the demographic information at the top of the job description.
  6. Enter in the “%” column. If the job will NOT involve any of the Principal Accountabilities within a section, type in 0% in % column. That section/ row will be deleted when reviewed by HR Compensation.
  7. Complete page 4 eRecruit information if this is a new position that will be posted.
  8. Please do not change any of the standard wording on these job descriptions. If the incumbent will be completing additional duties/responsibilities that cannot be captured within the wording given, add a bullet point beneath the closest standard duty/ responsibility.
  9. Minimum Qualifications may not be altered.  Additional desired qualifications may be added under the ‘Preferred Qualifications’ section of the description.
  10. Once completed, please e-mail the job description to your Lead Compensation Analyst for review and processing.
  11. Specific for the Research Technologist Job Family Matrix: On the actual job descriptions, have the Manager/PI highlight the necessary skills in #1 Principal Accountabilities.
