Job Profiling

job profiles

A Job Profile provides an accurate, realistic, current picture of the details and outputs of a particular job.

  • Job title
  • Job purpose/job location
  • Ideal qualifications
  • Performance criteria
  • Supervisory relationships
  • Authority levels
  • Inter-relationships with other jobs in the same area
  • Relevant experience and competencies
  • Special working conditions
Organisation’s can ensure that their employees have a clear picture of the organisation’s standards, expectations and reporting structure.
The individual can clearly see what their roles and responsibilities are, making it easier for them to to measure their growth, define their career path and understand how their job relates to other jobs in the organisation.
Profiles should be reviewed annually so that the jobs can be accurately benchmarked in the external market.

Employment Equity: Equal Pay for Work of Equal Value

Equal Pay legislation

It is essential to have an overview of equality within an organisation.

All organisations are required by law to have a system in place that remunerates work equally – or differentiates fairly – for work of equal value.

  • Fair recruitment, selection and appointment,
  • A defensible system of Job Evaluation,
  • Defensible pay scales and mid-point differentials,
  • Periodic monitoring that there are no indefensible differences in remuneration and terms and conditions of employment between gender, race, disability, pregnancy or any other prohibited or arbitrary ground,
  • Making adjustments towards achieving equity as required.
When there is unequal remuneration and/or terms and conditions of employment, the Act and Regulations considers fair discrimination (within the same employer) for the following:

  • Same work as another employee,
  • If work is identical,
  • If work is interchangeable,
  • If work is substantially the same or sufficiently similar to be reasonably considered as similar,
  • If work is of the same value of another employee in a different job.
