40. Classification of Professional Employees and Managerial Positions

40.1 Classification levels for Professional Employee positions and Senior Managerial positions at the University will be assessed using a point’s factor evaluation system (USQ Job Evaluation Management System (JEMS)) by trained evaluators and outlined in the USQ JEMS.

40.2 The University has introduced a linked classification program for professional employees, which recognises that duties and responsibilities of specific positions, may on occasion, extend beyond one classification level. The linked classification program considers the organisational requirements of specific positions and provides professional employees with the opportunity for further development and extended career and salary progression through the identification of increased knowledge, skills and abilities.
