UBC IT manages a Career Framework Program in collaboration with IT professionals across campus. The Career Framework is composed of 13 distinct Career Ladders and 48 unique job positions aligning to nine M&P Information Systems and Technology classification levels (compensation). The Career Framework is designed to assist IT professionals to determine where they currently are and where they would like to develop their career. Movement within the framework can be:
- lateral from one level in a ladder across to a different ladder at the same level
- diagonally from one level in a ladder upwards to a higher level in a different ladder
- upwards from one level in a ladder to a higher level in the same ladder
Movement from one position to another is determined by acquiring the skills, experience and competencies required for the new position and the availability of the position in the organization. Once career goals have been chosen, UBC IT HR or a Department's HR representative can help employees identify opportunities, assess, develop and plan your career in IT at UBC.
