Career Band
A career band groups a series of like jobs under a sub-function within the career framework in order to recognize the technical, clinical, specialized, managerial and executive career bands. For a description of each, please reference the Career Band Guide. Career bands are grouped into the individual contributor series and the people leader series.

Career Framework
The career framework is the job architecture behind the Career Roadmap. It provides a consistent way to assign career levels to jobs and to value jobs. It also groups like jobs and provides the foundation to define career paths.

Career Level
A career level represents a significant step in an individual’s career progression. Career levels are defined consistently across the institution and apply to all job functions. The description of each career level is contained within the Career Level Guide for each career band. The description is articulated in terms of profile, knowledge, complexity, autonomy, interaction and minimum requirements for education and experience.

Job Function
A broad grouping of occupational disciplines within the career framework. One example is information technology.

Job Profile
A unique combination of function, sub-function, career band, and career level equates to a job profile. Each job profile has a title used to describe the job within the career framework. The job profile description is composed of the job function and sub-function descriptions, the career band description, and the Career Level Guide description. The combination of this information describes the nature of the work within the discipline and the level at which the work is being performed.

A recognized occupational discipline grouped under only one job function within the career framework. An example of a sub-function may be Application Development grouped under the information technology job function.
