Big Sandy Area Development District      Policy Manual

Job Descriptions

Big Sandy ADD makes every effort to create and maintain accurate position descriptions for all positions within the District. Each description includes sections for position information; a job summary (giving a general overview of the job's purpose); essential duties and responsibilities; supervisory responsibilities; and qualifications.

We use the position descriptions to help new employees understand their job duties and to set standards for employee performance evaluations. Job descriptions are also used to identify the minimum requirements of each position, establish hiring criteria, and establish a basis for making reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities.

The team leader prepares position descriptions when new positions are created. Existing position descriptions are also reviewed and revised in order to ensure that they are up to date. Job descriptions may also be rewritten periodically to reflect any changes in the position's duties and responsibilities. You can also be helpful by making sure that your position description accurately reflects the work you do.

We would like you to remember that position descriptions do not necessarily cover every task or duty that you may be assigned, and that additional responsibilities may be assigned as necessary. You can contact your team leader if you have any questions or concerns about your position description.
