Overview

Evaluators need to understand why the job exists, determine the focus of the work and have a sound understanding of the job responsibilities, then assess it against the:

  • stream definitions for each Subsidiary work group by considering the stream descriptor in its entirety rather than isolated phrases
  • guide charts
  • benchmark jobs developed for each Subsidiary and Stream, which identify the number of levels and characterize the difference between the work in each level in a Stream

In some cases, it may be necessary to assess the work by using the guide charts and benchmarks for the management plan.

The following questions can be used as a guide:

  • Which Subsidiary and Stream do the job responsibilities fall within?
  • What is the rating?
  • Which benchmark job aligns with the kind and level of work?
  • Where appropriate, do the job responsibilities compare to the Management Job Evaluation Plan and the benchmarks?

Work currently performed within the Technical, General and Field Services component of the Government of Alberta has been evaluated using a point rating system. To assess whether a job falls within the Technical, General and Field Services component, consider the type of work performed. Determine the focus of the job: why does the job exist? Once you have clarified the job's purpose, determine whether the job belongs in this Subsidiary and, if so, in which Stream. Seven groupings have been recognized in the Technical, General and Field Services component of the Alberta Public Service. These are:
