Job Profiler

Know what you should be looking for.

This component reliably identifies the competencies that drive high performance in any job, using the same 31-point competency framework used for the Ability Imprint.

The Process

A Job Profile is created by selecting one of three AbilityMap Job Profiling strategies;

Expert Job Profile

Someone who knows the job well (a Line Manager or Hiring Manager) selects the competencies they believe drive performance in a job. Then, a rigorous prioritisation process ranks the competencies required for success in that role. The process takes 10-15 minutes.

Collaborative Job Profile

A group of people who know the job well each select the competencies they believe drive performance in a job. Through collaboration, a final set of competencies is selected, prioritised and ranked. The process takes 10-15 minutes.

High Performer Job Profile

A group of employees who consistently perform at ‘high performance’ levels completes Ability Imprints. The Imprints are compiled, and the Profiler identifies the strongest, common competencies across this team and priority ranks them.

“It is our aim that every business has access to a job profiling tool that accurately pinpoints the competencies required for job success.”

The Job Profile is a core component of the Ability Map system. Using the Job Profile, a list of soft skills are generated to help businesses identify the true competencies required for high performance in a role.

A groundbreaking tool for recruitment, the Job Profile takes out the subjectivity and bias involved in the Job Analysis process. It gives you a clear list of what you should actually be looking for in candidates, not what you think you should be looking for!

Not only for recruitment, the tool can also be used to assess the different roles within your organisation, and in combination with the Ability Imprint and Matching Engine, ensure you have the right people in the right roles.

Job Profiling in Action

The Ability Map Job Profiling process has been used by a large number of companies and individuals across major industries including: Medical & Pharmaceutical, Nursing, Financial Services, Sports & Leisure, Accounting, Recruitment, IT Services & Software, Manufacturing, Advertising, Transport, Higher Education, Construction, Mining, Courier Services and Coaching.

Generating a Job Profile with Ability Map

There are three different ways to generate a job profile in the Ability Map system.

High Performance Job Profile

The High Performance Job Profile is the first and most accurate because it leverages the individuals that you identify as already succeeding in the role (high performers). These high performers undergo an Ability Imprint where their strongest competencies are compared and normed, generating a set of competencies to use as the basis for comparison.

Collaborative Job Profile

If there isn’t a sufficient pool of high performers to produce a quality job profile, then a group of ‘experts’ can collaborate to create a Collaborative Job Profile. A set of performance criteria are reviewed and prioritised by designated experts in any location, providing the hiring authority the ability to select a final set of competencies.

Expert Job Profile

Similar to the Collaborative Job Profile, a single expert can review the competency set to select the critical and essential competencies they believe are required for the job, what we term an Expert Job Profile. This is an effective path to overcome the challenges facing hiring managers when subjectivity and gut is the only tool available to estimate what drives performance in a role.

The benefits of the Ability Map Job Profile

  • Gives businesses a way to objectively and scientifically determine the traits for individual success for any role
  • Built on the same competency framework as the Ability Imprint, laying the foundation for quick, accurate and scalable analysis
  • Generates a report outlining critical and essential competencies for the role

Scientific Job Profiling

The Job Profile is built on an underlying competency framework developed by psychologist Kevin Chandler. Combining job profiling techniques and predictive algorithms, the Ability Map Job Profile gives businesses access to an objective, scalable and cost-effective job profiling tool.
