Finance Job Family

This website is for the express purpose of sharing information for the Finance Job Family, a subset of the job family project led by University Human Resources (UHR). A sample of the expected results of this project can be found here.

When the project started in January 2013, over 600 employees with over 200 unique University titles were identified in the "finance" area (and that doesn't even include the complexity of "working titles"!). The current list is only 30 titles. Our goal is to keep the University job titles as streamlined as possible so that it is relatively quick and easy to identify the correct University title for any particular job. The University title and associated description should match any specific person's job description by 60 percent to be considered an accurate match.
