Job Analysis & Competency Development

What is job analysis?

Job Analysis is the process used to gather and collate information about the skills, behaviours, and responsibilities required to perform job roles effectively. The output of job analysis is often referred to as 'job competencies'. Using adaptations to established job analysis techniques, alongside its own JobCraft® survey tool, The Keil Centre engages staff in defining what are the core capabilities and expectations for roles and responsibilities either within a single or across multiple tiers within the organisation.

Some description


The competency frameworks we have developed for clients over the years have taken various forms. We consult with organisations on how best to integrate competencies into HR processes. For example,  to guide recruitment and selection,  to inform performance and development review,  to plumb into 360° Feedback and  to advise on appropriate behaviours to sustain Health and Safety.
