Departmental Template: IT Job Descriptions

We have added IT Role Description Templates relevant for IT Professionals at the bottom of this page.  These role templates are held within Cambridge University's HR Department. The background about the Role Template Library and guidance is stated below.

  • The Role Template Library contains a range of pre-graded templates that can be used across the University, these can be adapted to fit your requirements or used as they are if they match your role requirements exactly. Guidance on the use of these template is available.
  • The Role Template Library is in a pilot phase for 3 months whilst we gather your feedback about how the templates work in practice. We are committed to reviewing all feedback at the end of this period and reviewing and amending the library where appropriate.
  • The Role Template Library is part of a wider grading review we are undertaking in partnership with our trade unions, which will also focus on consistency checking, process and procedural reviews and HERA scoring practice, levels and outcomes across the university.
