CAREER TRACKS

A new job classification framework that aligns similar jobs internally at UCI, throughout the UC system, and externally with the marketplace, creating career pathways for staff.

WHAT IS CAREER TRACKS?

Career Tracks is a UC initiative that enables all locations to define job titles consistently across the university. Levels for individual contributor, supervisory and management roles within each distinct functional area now align across occupations and with the labor market for comparable jobs, including jobs outside higher education.

HOW CAREER TRACKS BENEFITS STAFF

Career Tracks has many benefits for employees and managers, including:

  • It gives employees better-defined career paths within their job functions.
  • Since it is systemwide, employees can see how to advance their career at any UC location.
  • Job titles reflect primary job responsibilities, thereby supporting efforts to recruit and retain qualified employees, and are aligned with pay practices in the local labor market.
  • With salary ranges reflecting the local market, managers can make better pay decisions.

In addition, Career Tracks fulfills UCI’s goals to standardize compensation and titling across our enterprise, and it allows us to move immediately to a common salary structure.

WHO

Career Tracks applies to all non-represented staff only.

Career Tracks does not impact represented employees, academic personnel, senior management, or student employees.

JOB MAPPINGA Simplified View

is not a salary program designed to give everyone a raise.
