Career Path

The Kent Technical Services Career Path sets out a standardised framework of job roles within the technical services profession. This clear and transparent pathway gives colleagues greater opportunity to identify the next step in their career at Kent.

The career path consists of 9 job role types, each with their specific job description. The job description outlines the key accountabilities and personal specification required for that type of role. The framework then allows the recognition of the unique and specialist characteristics in the form of technical specialisms. This enables the deployment of role types to specialist subject areas across the University.

The career path offers both a management and specialist pathway. The management route recognises those colleagues looking to develop their career through people management. Whereas the technical specialist route is for those colleagues who wish to remain focused on a specialist area including facilities and equipment. 

The career path enables staff greater opportunity to work with managers to target their professional development and identify and apply for roles when advertised.
