Welcome to Al Falah University’s Human Resources Unit. AFU offers many opportunities with great employment benefits with a friendly environment. We are strongly committed to enhancing the diversity of our workforce.
The Human Resource unit renders recruiting, issuance of visas, job evaluations, promotions, payroll, and training and development services as per UAE MOHRE rules and regulations.
Al Falah University’s Human Resource Unit prepares Job Descriptions for all positions and is one of the Unit’s primary focus and responsibility.
For every staff position at Al Falah (AFU) there is a corresponding job description that accurately and fully describes the job. This document provides an understanding of the position’s major responsibilities, details how the responsibilities are accomplished, and identifies the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to perform the job. A copy is on file with the Human Resources Department, and shared with employees at the time of hire.
A well written job description not only describes the position’s responsibilities, it supports effective human resources management in a variety of ways. First, it sets the foundation for recruiting, developing and retaining talent and also sets the stage for optimum work performance by clarifying job responsibilities, expected results, and evaluation of the performance.
The job description also is an important component to maintaining an equitable compensation system and ensuring legal compliance with the Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA) in Abu Dhabi / at the Federal level.
The job description document is revisited and updated in line with the yearly performance evaluation cycle.
Each job description at AFU contains sufficient information to describe major responsibilities and essential functions; however, the document does not include every detail of how and what work is performed so that it remains useful even when minor changes occur. AFU staff members or supervisors may write the job description, but the supervisor for each department must finally approve it.
AFU has created “job description templates,” with detailed samples and with some guidance on building the document that can be found in the AFU / HR department.
Below are some Job Description/examples that display AFU’s efficient job description writing system which clearly shows the AFU methodology for writing a clear, easy to understand job description.
The following is an outline of the major sections of the job description, along with AFU’s suggestions for completing them.
Section 1: Identifying Information
Section 2: Position Purpose
Section 3: Responsibilities, Supporting Actions, & End Results and Major Responsibility
Section 4: Decision-Making
Explain Decisions Which Depend On Your Advice
Section 5: Dimensions
Section 6: Job Qualifications
Section 7: Other Information
AFU recognizes that creating a job description can be a time-consuming process so the Human Resources department has created some generic job descriptions with similar major responsibilities and qualifications for positions at Al Falah. These templates are provided for our staff and supervisors to download and edit to correspond to the specific job-related criteria in their department to facilitate and expedite the recruitment process.
The Al Falah University Human Resources Department will finally review each and every job descriptions and assign an appropriate priority ranking and salary grades as needed.
