Council Position Descriptions

Position Descriptions provide employees (or potential employees) with a succinct document detailing the following key components:

  • Position Purpose
  • Key Relationships (internal and external)
  • Key Duties of the Position
  • Accountability/Responsibility
  • Selection Criteria (qualifications & experience - knowledge, skills & abilities)  

A Position Description is not an exhaustive document, but rather contains a high level overview of the role, clarifies expectations of Council and holds employees accountable for position deliverables.  It is important that Position Descriptions are reviewed and updated regularly (in consultation with the employee) according to Council’s operational requirements.
