Position Groups

Position Groups

Position groups are used for creating a general group of positions that includes all roles that may be suitable for a job or roster shift.

For example, you may create a General Labourer group that comprises of the following positions across numerous awards Landscape Labourer, Construction Labourer and Removals Labourer.

  2. Name the Group then choose positions from the drop-down list. Start typing the position name to filter the list.  Note only positions within your award will be available to choose from.
    • Please note if you don't have your desired position appear, you may need to add it to the award first.
  3. Click Save.
    • Note: In most cases, the Position Groups are used to assign bulk positions to an employees profile. In some cases it is used to search for employees.
