Find out how Career Tracks, UC’s new program to clarify job classifications and facilitate career paths, will affect you at a series of orientation sessions for campus and medical center staff employees. This phase of the Career Tracks project impacts policy-covered, non-represented Information Technology employees only.

Career Tracks will replace UC’s outdated job classification framework with a market-based system for all Management and Senior Professionals (MSP) and Professional and Support Staff (PSS) employees. The goal is to group jobs into more clearly defined families that better align across UCSF including Medical Center as well as with similar jobs at other UC locations. Also important in the process is to align UCSF jobs to other similar positions in the Bay Area labor market. Career Tracks does not impact base salary, job duties or working titles.

Career Tracks will define jobs and job levels more clearly and consistently. The new structure will provide more information — like relationships between jobs and transferable skills — that will help employees plan their careers in specific functional areas both locally and across the UC system. Career Tracks has been successfully implemented or is being implemented currently at other UC locations as well. The longer term plan is to have Career Tracks at all UC campuses and medical centers in the future.

Designated department leaders have already been briefed and are in the process of aligning current jobs to new Career Tracks job titles for all MSP and PSS positions in their units. At this time we’d like to introduce the project to all IT employees, managers, and supervisors.

The 60-minute presentation is voluntary and will be held at the following times:
