Reviewing Existing Position Descriptions

ReviewUMass Chan has a new position description system called JDXpert that consists of all existing UMass Chan job descriptions, and is currently available to managers for review and/or revisions to their existing UMass Chan job descriptions. However, the Compensation department has not yet launched the JDXpert system for managers to create new job descriptions. Therefore, managers should use the current electronic position description template to create a position description until this launch.

*Access to the JDXpert portal is available to managers for review/revisions to their existing job descriptions only by accessing the JDXpert portal via the Portals section of this Manager website. 

*A manager will not have access to the JDXpert system unless they have attended the required system training that will grant them approval for access.

When should a position description be rewritten?

A position description should be rewritten when there are significant changes to the functions, competencies, and/or qualifications. Position descriptions should be reviewed on a periodic basis to determine whether they are still accurate and current. You can access the UMass Chan existing job descriptions from the JDXpert Position Description System.
