How do I recruit for a position?
Recruitments are intiated within the UVM PeopleAdmin Jobsite. For more detailed information, please refer to the Recruitment and Interview Guide for Supervisors.
How is my salary set?
Salaries are determined on an individual basis by the management team responsible for the position and classification & compensation staff, taking market data and internal equity into account. Normally, upon movement of a position to a higher pay band, an employee is eligible to receive a position review increase of generally no less than 5%. Salaries cannot be below the minimum of the pay band.
What opportunities exist for a salary increase?
Annual salary increases for classified staff typically take effect July 1.
Non-represented staff may also be eligible to receive an Off-Cycle Increase, which is intended to address market and equity issues relative to recruitment, retention, and organizational change during the fiscal year. Such increases are contingent on availability of sufficient funds in department budgets.
What career opportunities exist?
UVM’s Career/Pay System is designed to facilitate the career planning process. Positions are grouped by different bodies of work so that employees can clearly identify what types of employment are available and what minimum qualifications are required for each type of work. There are formal and informal career progressions, with full details available on the web.
Where can I find a written description of my job?
The primary source of information about your job is your formal Position Description (PD), which you can get from your supervisor or HR Representative. The Job Posting that was available during the recruitment process is a condensed version of your PD and may contain additional information. Finally, a generic description/Job Standard for your position is available online.
Your ‘UVM Classification Title’ appears on the generic Job Standard and your PD. You may also have an individual ‘Departmental Business Title’ which may appear on the web and in the phone book.
How do I get a copy of my Position Description?
Contact the Human Resource Representative for your area to obtain a copy of your current Position Description.
What happens if my job changes?
The Career/Pay System includes broad, market-based pay bands that will accommodate changes in jobs. So if your job duties have changed or increased, you may be eligible for an Off-Cycle Increase while remaining in your current title. If ongoing and substantial changes have occurred in the nature, variety, and complexity of work in your position, it may need to be reviewed to determine if another title is more appropriate.
Why classify positions?
Like most large organizations, UVM classifies its staff positions to help supervisors communicate with applicants and employees about jobs, to help determine salaries, and to ensure compliance with laws such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Civil Rights Act, and the Americans With Disabilities Act.
