New standard position descriptions available for administrative, executive assistant jobs

As part of Purdue’s ongoing efforts to provide greater transparency for staff around jobs and compensation, Human Resources is introducing a new standard position description for administrative assistant and executive assistant jobs.

Since the rollout of the job family structure, Human Resources has fielded questions from both staff and managers related to the difference between the career levels of these jobs. To improve the documentation, consistency and understanding of this information, standardized position descriptions have been developed. No changes have been made to the positions themselves.

The goal of these standard descriptions is to better outline the career levels put in place with the rollout of the job family structure and provide greater clarity for staff and managers. Additionally, the descriptions should be a useful tool for staff for career development and advancement.

The new position descriptions and documentation can be found on the Human Resources website in the Organizational Structure and Position page under Position Description Information. As new jobs are created or positions are reviewed, the new standard position description should be used.
