UTS Human Resources

Before you can recruit, you must have an up-to-date and evaluated position description or position statement. You need a position statement for academic roles and a position description for support and SSG (Senior Staff Group) roles.

If you have an up-to-date description of the role, you can go on to writing the selection criteria. If you don't have a description of the role, you need to write one. If you have one that requires updating to reflect changes to an existing role, you need to rewrite it.

If you need help writing a position description the Job design section provides information and resources.   

What to do

  • Refer to  Writing a Position Description  to help you write or rewrite a position description in the UTS format.
  • Download the UTS position description template to complete.
  • Once you have an up-to-date and evaluated position description or position statement, print it out and send it to your contact in the Human Resources Unit (HRU), as part of the approval process. You must also send an electronic copy to your contact in HRU so that they can make it available to applicants.
