The Job Architecture Imperative

Creating and maintaining a dynamic, future-proofed job architecture is becoming a strategic imperative for all organisations.

The Challenge with Current Job Structures


Many organisations exist as a long list of job titles and associated job codes that have been organically added as the organisation has grown, changed or merged. However, for many organisations that do have a job structure in place, it is often the case that this exercise has been done but, over time, has become increasingly difficult to govern and manage.

A job architecture forms the building blocks of an organisation. It provides a framework for defining and aligning jobs within your organisation based on the type of work performed.

A job architecture provides you with a mechanism to consolidate all your job titles into a consistent framework that provides clarity and transparency on career levels and pay.

The Benefits of a Job Architecture

Many organisations are now looking to build a simple, dynamic job architecture as the building blocks of their strategic workforce management.

Key drivers to adopting or updating a job architecture includes:

  • Creating a foundation for pay and reward, enabling external benchmarking
  • Enabling and managing pay equity
  • Managing compliance reporting
  • Maximising HR technology investment and optimising processes
  • Creating alignment following mergers and acquisitions
  • Learning, career paths and succession planning
  • Shifting to a skills-based organisation
