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. The classification level of Professional employee positions will be consistent with the requirements of the Position Classification Standards referred to in Clause 38.2.1 and commensurate with the work required to be performed.
40.2 The University’s Professional Employee Position Progression Program recognises that duties and responsibilities of specific positions, may on occasion, extend beyond one (1) classification level as outlined in the Professional Employee Position Progression Procedure. The Professional Employee Position Progression 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.
