Career Tracks

After several years of preparation, on-going consultation, and tremendous work by many employees across the campus and within Human Resources, UCSB implemented Career Tracks in May 2018. Career Tracks is a new framework and job architecture that aligns jobs to respective labor markets by occupation.  Career Tracks enables UC to define job titles consistently within each location and across the university. Levels for individual contributor, supervisory and management roles are defined consistently across occupations for comparable jobs. Career Tracks makes it easier for employees to identify and develop career paths and contains well defined job standards that will replace the outdated Series Concepts and Classification Specifications for policy-covered jobs.
